Confirmation sessions are held on Wednesday nights from 6:30 – 8:00 pm. Our first session is Orientation on September 14. Confirmation students and at least one parent must attend!
Confirmation sessions run from September to May with breaks during Christmas and Easter. Students are expected to attend and assist with Wednesday evening worships during Lent.
We are using a three-year rotation in the "Here We Stand" curriculum from Augsburg Fortress. This year (2022-23) our focus is on The Life of Jesus and the Beginnings of the Church.
How it works…
Confirmation sessions follow the FAITH5™ model of Share, Read, Talk, Pray, Bless. We begin with an introductory activity, followed by a lesson on the topic, led by Pastor Amy, which includes Bible readings and real life applications. Then, youth have small group time with an adult guide to share about their lives and discuss the topic of the night. Finally, we end with announcements, prayer, and a blessing.
At least once a month, we also have special service nights in which students take part in a service project or learning about a special issue which can be informed by their faith. (Examples of these include: writing encouraging notes to homebound members, singing Christmas carols at local nursing homes, packing care packages, doing work projects around the church, learning about mental health, talking about suicide risk and prevention.)
