Youth in 6th-8th grades participate in confirmation to affirm the promises that were made for them in baptism through small groups every Sunday night through the months of September-May. In addition to regular worship, students take classes, go on retreats to Bethel Horizons, and participate in service work to be God’s hands at work in the world.
- Confirmation meets every Sunday night, 6-7:30pm for pizza, large group games, and small group Bible study.
- Classes are offered primarily on Sunday mornings with other options available.
Classes are offered as an opportunity for an in-depth examination of how we fit into God’s story. Classes will have a particular emphasis on the Bible, faith practices and Lutheran foundations, or the role of society and culture in faith.
Please participate in 20 classes (40 hours) throughout your confirmation experience. If you have taken classes in previous years, count the hours toward your total rather than the category.
Confirmation Retreats happen each year in fall and spring at Bethel Horizons. Confirmation students are invited to participate in at least three during their confirmation journey!
