NEW THIS FALL
  • Why the change?  Because the first two years of Faith Youth IGNITE are mostly academic in nature.  Ignite students learn during the first two years by studying their Bibles along with Luther’s small catechism.  It is important for us to help them put that book learning into action.  In this third year – the Faith APPS year, they will have the opportunity to apply these understandings, values and beliefs by doing, by hearing the Faith stories of a variety of elders, through exploratory classes that they choose from a menu and that fit their own interests, talents and calling. 
    • Students will be exposed to a variety of leaders and teachers as well as different mixtures of their peers as they choose their learning experiences from a menu of options.  Each student will get the opportunity to match their learning to their own interests, talents and schedule. 
    • This transition year to the new three year program will also be the year that two classes of IGNITE students will Affirm their Baptism at Confirmation.  This year’s 10th grade students will be confirmed on Sunday, October 26th.  This year’s 9th grade class will be confirmed on Sunday, April 26th.
