YOUTH / CONFIRMATION
The confirmation program for sixth, seventh and eighth grade students utilizes video clips, art projects, drama, as well as traditional study and discussion to help kids begin to make the transition toward a more mature faith. The three year program focuses on the Old Testament, the New Testament, and our Lutheran identity. Each student is paired with an adult mentor in the congregation. Students and mentors meet regularly to talk about faith and real life. Students also enjoy an annual retreat and service project. The program provides young people with the understanding needed to affirm their baptism and helps to lay a solid foundation for life-long Christian education, while also building relationships and having fun. For more information about our confirmation program, please contact Pastor Jennie.
Each young person is matched with an adult confirmation mentor early in the confirmation process. In worship, the pair is yoked together with a stole as a symbol of their shared bond and their commitment to one another. Mentors support and encourage their students, and enrich the confirmation experience by sharing their faith and working together. Students add artwork to their stoles representing their growth and experiences in confirmation, and wear the completed stole on confirmation day.
