Confirmation

Confirmation Ministry at St. Paul is a 3 year program, usually completed by students in grades 6, 7, and 8. We meet weekly during the school year on alternate Monday evenings.There will also be some additional activities and retreats from time to time throughout the year.

Goals for the Confirmation Program

  • To equip our students to claim their baptismal promises and to prepare them to become full and active members of the congregation.
  • To provide families with tools to engage in caring conversations about faith at home.
  • To encourage students and families to find meaningful ways to serve others in the congregation and in the community.
  • To build relationships where students can ask questions about faith and discuss how faith impacts daily living.
  • To provide students with a solid foundation in scripture reading and Lutheran theology.

Class materials are covered in a 3-year rotation, with each year covering either Luther’s Small Catechism, the New Testament, or the Old Testament. We currently are using Colaborate and Re: Form (http://wearesparkhouse.org/teens/reform/ )
