"I must remain a child and pupil of the catechism, and am glad to do so." - Martin Luther
Risen Savior’s Faith Foundations (Confirmation/Catechism) is a spiritual strengthening tool. It uses God’s Word to help growing young Christians become more stable, secure and strong in their faith. Faith Foundations is instruction in the basic teachings of the Bible. Classes at Risen Savior are for early teens and their parents...typically starting during the 6th or 7th grade year. Classes run the length of the school year, and students will complete two years of catechism classes in order to be confirmed. The connection of a special Sunday when each “confirmand” can stand up in front of church is a reminder for the confirmand and the church that this young Christian has engaged in the strengthening process. Confirmation signals the child's entry into the church as an adult, and they receive communion for the first time. Confirmation is in the spring.

"They read from the Book of the Law of God, making it clear and giving the meaning so that the people could understand what was being read." - Nehemiah 8:8
