Working through a Module Program confirmation allows for students to work through 10 modules over the course of 2 years. Students that are currently enrolled at Trinity Lutheran School will receive 3 (OT/NT) of their module credits via the religion classes offered as part of the regular curriculum. Students that attend public schools will have the OT/NT modules offered during the summer months.
First Communion is offered to those in 5th grade and up. This class is offered once a year (and is part of our Module Program) and prepares our hearts and minds to receive the Lord's Supper. For 2015 this module will be held on Wednesday evenings (February 4th & 11th at 6:00-8:00pm, and February 18th from 5:00-6:30pm (prior to Ash Wednesday Service)). After receiving this instruction you will then participate in your First Communion during Holy Week.
