At Gracepointe Church, we believe that it is important to “train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6) Historically, one of the most effective methods to accomplish this goal is catechetical instruction. However, catechism is not just for kids. This method of learning is a great way for adults to learn the important precepts of the Christian faith. We recognize that the concept of catechism is unfamiliar to many. Therefore, please feel free to contact us if we can answer any questions or concerns that you might have.
In its simplest form catechism is a synopsis of the important doctrines of our faith in the form of questions and answers, used for the instruction of Christians.
We are utilizing The New City Catechism for the classes we will offer for both adults and children. The questions and their responses are used as a tool to engage with the fundamentals of the faith that they teach. We will have an adult class and a kid’s class.
Both classes will take place on Wednesday evenings from 6:15-7:30.
