Adolescence is a turbulent time in the life of most students; they are trying to define who they are and looking for a place to belong. Confirmation is a place where students in the 6th, 7th & 8th grades can explore the Lutheran faith and learn more about what it means to be a Christian. While the program is a systematic study of Christian doctrine, we have a lot of fun, connecting with each other as friends who learn together, question together, play together and serve together under the supervision of caring adult small group leaders.

Confirmation for 7th & 8th graders meets weekly during the academic year over a two-year period, culminating in the Rite of Confirmation where students have the opportunity to publicly affirm their Christian faith and celebrate together. The Rite of Confirmation service is held annually on Reformation Sunday, which is on the last Sunday of October. Confirmands present their “life verse” from God’s Word during this meaningful service and celebration.

Confirmation Prep is an opportunity for 6th grade students to prepare for their participation in Confirmation by completing a fun and informative study of the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation (beginning to end) in a year! The study is especially engaging for preteens as it uses The Action Bible as its text. Much of the study is completed as a family devotional time with reading and activities done in the home. Students check in one Monday night a month to connect with the lessons and have fun with their friends as they begin to establish relationships that pave the way for a great small group experience in the 7th and 8th grade.

To ask questions about the Confirmation Ministry or if you would like to register your 6th to 8th grade student, please contact the Director of Children’s Ministry, Roseanna Andersen.
