Catechism

“Catechism” is instruction in the Christian doctrine. Students learn the basics of the Christian faith through simple questions and answers. The regular curriculum is designed for teenagers and follows the Heidelberg Catechism from 1561. The pre-confession class is a preparation for becoming full (“communicant”) member in a Reformed church.
