PoP uses the Faith Inkubators program, which is highly interactive and does a terrific job of putting the lessons into context for today’s middle-schoolers. We present the curriculum over a three-year cycle, building significant review into each year’s program. However, if your son or daughter is missing a year or two, we will hold makeup sessions to make sure they have a comprehensive grasp of the material. This year our units will cover: Martin Luther and the Reformation, Lord’s Prayer, Hot Topics (Part 2)

Each Sunday the emphasis is on teaching students how to listen to and rely on God's Word in helping them make difficult and everyday decisions. Group discussions around current events supported by scripture, multimedia, websites and video clips are used to enhance lesson plans. In addition to teacher-created lesson plans, course materials also come from the ELCA youth site which provides outstanding weekly discussion and devotional themes, Bluefish TV which provides 4-week video mini-courses tailored directly to youth and NOOMA short films that explore our world from the perspective of Jesus.  Our goal is to prepare our youth to be spiritually and morally self-sufficient as they graduate from high school and move on to independence and adulthood.
