Questions and Answers

What do I need to bring?

Just a pen and a Bible, if you have one. We’ll provide a lesson guide and a complementary copy of Luther’s Small Catechism for each family.

Is there homework?

A bit, but nothing too burdensome. Just some recommended reading with each lesson and memorizing of important points.  Much of the learning happens in class.

Can I bring children?

The class itself is aimed at upper teens and adults. For those with child care needs, just ask at the sign up and we’ll provide babysitters for a small fee.

What if I miss a class?

No worries, it happens. We provide an online recording so you can follow along at home. Pastors can often provide live make-up opportunities as well.

Can I just audit the class, with no obligations on my part?

Sure. In fact, we don’t assume any obligations of cost or membership on your part.  We’re glad to have you check us out.
