Our confirmation program is designed to bring faith alive! We believe our youth learn by experience as much as from books. We encourage our 6th-9th-grade youth to be active in our youth program, which meets every other Wednesday and includes Bible Study, videos, group discussions and games.
In addition, we hope our kids become an active part of our outreach at the church, including summer mission trips, volunteering at our local thrift shop, as well as designing and presenting one service each year for the entire congregation.
Our Confirmation curriculum for students (in 9th grade and older) features four Wednesday evening sessions in spring focusing on Luther’s Small Catechism. Older students and adults who have not been confirmed are also welcome. Parents are strongly encouraged to attend with their kids. Many parents who have attended assert that this is a very rich and rewarding time, where they are able to talk about faith issues and topics they haven’t previously discussed with their children. At the end of these sessions each student will present their own personal creed to the congregation.
