Confirmation at Faith is not about accomplishing a goal and then graduating—we truly believe that affirming your baptism (confirmation) is the first step in developing young leaders of the church.
We have high expectations that our youth will regularly attend on Wednesday nights in the school year and attend a yearly retreat for deeper connections with friends who share a common yearning to understand how Jesus walks with us in faith.
Confirmation students spend their 7th and 8th grade years learning the Bible stories and how they apply to our daily lives. In 9th grade, the students build their knowledge about Martin Luther’s teachings in the Small Catechism and in January, they affirm their baptism. But it doesn’t end there…
Youth group, from 9th-12th grade, allows young leaders dig into the deeper issues of faith. At Faith, we don’t just say that the youth are important. We look to our youth to teach us about what it means to be Christians in a complex and changing world.
Pastor John pops in regularly to this high school led and organized group on Wednesday nights from 6:30-7:30 and Sunday morning from 10-10:30 before worship. The group will spend time in devotion and bonding, while also engaging in fun, fellowship, and service. It's called "Drop-in", but we hope you make this a regular part of your week.
We have fun but also take things seriously. We know that you have plenty of things going on in your life. This is a place to unplug from the daily grind and come together with other young Christians looking for depth to their faith. You don’t have to be a member of Faith. You don’t have to be confirmed. You don’t have to be Lutheran. You do have to come with an open mind and a willingness to support others.
We invite all ages to be part of music ministry at Faith!
