The membership of Calvary consider Christian Education to be vital. One of the tasks that parents lend to the pastor is the opportunity to teach the six chief parts of Christian Teaching as outlined by Martin Luther in his Small Catechism. When the students have completed their studies and are equipped to prepare themselves to receive the Lord's Supper, they are confirmed. The pastors of Calvary, like faithful pastors everywhere have played a role in teaching children the whole council of God (cf. Acts 20:27). If you click on the Pastor's name you will see a few of those Confirmation Classes. Students or Confirmands are dressed in white, not because they are themselves pure, but because they are cleansed of sin through faith in Jesus Christ.
