Confirmation

Confirmation is a collection of experiences for the head, heart and hands of high school students to dive deeper into a living faith in Jesus Christ. Based on Luther's teachings in the Small Catechism, discover the heart of Jesus story is show to us God's love and grace through God's Word and the Sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion. Students are invited to make promises (echoing those that their families made at their baptism) and to live in Christian community and serve their neighbor.


Classes for 9th grade students are held on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 or Sunday mornings at 9:40 during the school year. Parents are included during the winter.

10th grade is held Wednesday evenings in the fall at 7:00 called Practicing the Promises. They also choose an adult faith mentor and meet 3 hours per month, four times through the fall.  Contact Pastor Kevin for more information about Confirmation.
