Discipleship Training (DT) is a two-year program for students in 7th and 8th grades for understanding and exploring our faith in Jesus Christ. Entering Discipleship Training is part of the Faith Milestones approach that we use at CTK.
In baptism parents, sponsors and the congregation made promises to fulfill responsibilities to nurture children in the Christian faith as we are empowered by the Holy Spirit. DT is another step along that journey.
The program includes several components, including:
• Wednesday classes
• Regular worship attendance
• Serving as acolyte in worship
• Service projects
• Other opportunities to serve during worship
• Parent support providing an occasional meal and assisting in other ways
This year the Wednesday classes will focus on the Bible. For year two, the tentative schedule includes material on the Small Catechism and Faith in Life.
