Confirmation Ministry

Confirmation Program

Confirmation Sessions Begin

Tuesday September 8 @ 6:00 PM.

The first session of Confirmation Ministry began on Tuesday September 8 at 6:00 PM in Christ Hall and ended on October 27. The sessions were roughly 45 minutes long. The design of the program this season allowed for in person or remote participation by students grade 7 and up who have not yet confirmed their faith in Christ Jesus. Participants were provided with a new study Bible. This is an edition of the sacred scripture that has proved helpful in past years and is accessible for students beginning the seventh grade. We practiced social distancing; each participant had their own table and supplies. The sessions were video recorded and presented (not the participants) so that any student not able to attend could have access to the session and complete the work independently. In addition to the Tuesday evening sessions scheduled, worship notes were an ongoing part of the program. The worship notes forms were provided along with all other necessary class materials. Worship notes could be completed through in person worship or by participating via the video recorded service posted to the church website. It was critically important that confirmation students who were not able to meet in person for class sessions discussed the materials with a member of their household. It is through conversations that faith and life is engaged. Information will be sent out before the next session begins.

The Confirmation Ministry follows the Small Catechism of Martin Luther. We began with the section on The Lord’s Prayer. The start date for the fall session was September 8 and the concluding date October 27. We hope that all of our students grade 7 and up will engage in this ministry.

Information will be sent out before the next session begins.

Our last group of students confirmed was in 2019; four students They are:  Ryan Butler, Alexander Hutton, Kaitlyn Seydel, and Sophia Zart.  Please keep these young members of our congregation in  your prayers.
