At each meeting, we get to know one another, discuss short videos on Christian faith (Ligonier Connect), have an open Q&A, and pray together. Our goal is to foster understanding, discipleship, and Christian community among the youth. More info on the GROW page.

11th & 12 Grade Catechism

introduction

This year, Juniors and Seniors will go through distinctives of Reformed theology, worship, and witness. Our goal is to ground students in the faith and tradition before they launch into graduation.

In addition to classes, there will a weekly quiz (based on texts and lectures) and assigned reading to complete before each lesson. Parents will be notified of progress.

Students, rest assured, Pastor Spotts knows you are busy. He promises to assign nothing he will not read himself. If you skip reading, be prepared to prove you were busier than him. ;)

Required Texts:

Please acquire textbooks by the second week of class. There may be copies in the church library to borrow. If not, Amazon often has used copies at a good price. If purchasing presents you with a financial hardship, please speak with a Deacon.

 

Assignments

Figure an hour of homework. Sunday afternoons are a great time for this. Consider it Sabbath devotions. Time well spent!
