St. John's Midweek education includes children in grades 3 through 8.  Grades 3 and 4 are taught by Dr. Doug Quam.  He introduces the children to the basic elements of the small catechism and starts the kids on memorization of some of the verses and sections of the catechism they will need to know in later grades.

Grades 5 and 6 are taught by Mr. Roger Zoske.  He advances the kids through more in depth discussion of the catechism and continues adding to the children's catalog of memorized passages.

Grades 7 and 8 are taught by Pastor Rueger.  A description of his confirmation class is found under the link for "Confirmation."

We believe that starting the children in 3rd grade gives them tremendous opportunities to take the teachings of God's Word into their lives and commit it to their heart.  It is our hope that these classes simply reinforce lessons learned in the home.  Parents are the primary teachers of God's Word to the children.  The instruction we offer in the Church is intended as support for parents in the God-giving task of raising their children in the one true faith.
