Colaborate

Our confirmation curriculum is called Colaborate by SparkHouse. Each students will receive a Bible that correlates to the weekly lessons. In addition to group discussions, students will break out into small groups to closely examine the Bible as well as Lutheran beliefs and history. For more information check out the video on the right or visit the Colaborate Website.
