Confirmation Ministry

Confirmation Program

Confirmation Program designed for Grades 7 & 8 – The Confirmation Program at St. Paul’s is designed to cover the basic portions of Luther’s Small Catechism, church history and navigating the Bible. These basic tools assist our young people as they grow in grace, faith and love. Young People in grades 7 & 8 should plan to attend all of the Sunday morning class
sessions as well as a few special service projects throughout the year. The current program completed in two years covers the same amount of material that we used to cover in a three year program where we held a fall and spring session on Sunday evenings. It is imperative that participants maintain high levels of engagement as we move through the material at an accelerated pace.

The program begins on September 17, 9:15Am in the Youth Room on the Upper Level with participants and their parents attending the first session. This time together will help bring clarity to the program and set expectations for the group. Questions regarding the program or enrolling your child should be address to Miss Kelly or Pastor Reep. Thank you for fulfilling your Baptism promises by bringing your child to catechetics and enrolling them in the Confirmation program at St. Paul’s. The schedule is included for your planning purposes.
