Six Chief (Digital) Parts

At Cornerstone, we work through the Six Chief Parts of Luther’s Small Catechism as part of our Confirmation instruction.  Of course, we’re putting our own digital spin on things to help students connect with the material.  We’ve contracted with a graphic designer in Spokane, Washington to make backgrounds for our teaching time that enhance the message.  Check out the first drafts:

TC - TitleB - Title C - Title LS - Title

LP - TitleCA - Title 

As I said, this is the first run, but I was so excited to get them.  I’ll post the final versions when they’re done, but couldn’t wait to share what we’ve got so far. 

Eventually, we hope to publish our Confirmation Curriculum for other churches to use in their Confirmation ministries.  We’ve been blessed with enough staff that we can spend time developing quality materials and we want to be a blessing to others as well.  We’re well on our way to getting there as we’ve got over half the material done.  We’ll finish it off this year and then it’s down to just tweaking and editing to make sure it’s ready to go.

  3. Thanks for stopping by Michelle!

    I write all the material myself. It’s a large-group teaching time followed by small group discussion. The small group material looks at a Bible story on the topic and includes 5 parts:

    Recap: Students shares highs/lows from week
    Relate: Activity or discussion for students to get to know one another better, themed around the topic for the day.
    Read: Read the Bible story
    Reflect: Questions to discuss about the story.
    Resolve: Options for how to apply the truth from the lesson to your life, modeled after the Daily Challenge from Group’s VBS material
