Sunday School is offered for K-6th grade. It begins at 9:00 am and classes conclude at 10:00 am.
Confirmation & First Communion
At First Trinity we take a process approach to confirmation. Confirmation is not about checking requirements off a list. Confirmation is not about getting to a point where you graduate from Christian education. Rather, confirmation is an ongoing and intentional process that helps to shape our young people into life-long, active, and informed Christians who, as they transition into adulthood, are confident and skilled in serving God and their neighbor. It is not going to get easier to be a Christian in this country, and our process for educating our Children in the faith should reflect the unique challenges that they will face in this world. For this reason, our formal confirmation process begins at 5th grade and does not end until 12th grade.
For 5th and 6th grade youth: Upon beginning the formal process of confirmation, youth will spend two years memorizing Luther's Small Catechism. 5th and 6th grade members will meet with Pastor during Sunday School at 9:00 am on Sunday mornings. Per examination by Pastor and Elders, 6th graders are invited to participate in the Rite of First Communion on Maundy Thursday.
For 7th and 8th grade youth: Upon completing their memory work and participating in the Rite of First Communion, 7th and 8th grades will continue the process of confirmation by attending class after schools from 4:00-5:30 pm on Wednesdays during the school year. Here they will dig deeper into the theology of the Scriptures as taught in the Small Catechism and learn basic Bible literacy.
