The Road Through Confirmation
We offer a foundational learning experience that prepares our students not only for their Confirmation day when they stand up in front of the church and confirm their faith in Jesus, but beyond. From Pre-K through 12th grade, we believe that all these years are an important part of our faith formation.
We are specifically calling the 6th-9th grade program The Road Through Confirmation, as our prayer is that Confirmation is not seen as a graduation or an end of a journey, but a milestone along their life long journey of faith. Our students, whether they are setting out for college, military service, entering into the work force or perhaps even as they begin a family of their own will experience a faith that sticks.
Middle School Education (6th-8th Grade)
Programs will happen on Wednesday nights (beginning September 21):
6th grade from 6:00–7:00 p.m.
7th & 8th grade from 7:00–8:00 p.m.
6th grade is a foundational year where students are asking “What’s it all about?” and will learn about Lutheran doctrine through the Small Catechism (10 Commandments, Lord’s Prayer, and Apostle’s Creed), Martin Luther, Prayer, and the Structure of the Bible.
7th & 8th grade is a deeper dive into faith where students ask “What does it mean for me?” and will learn about Relationships, Jesus’s Life, Faith & Culture, and take a longer look at a character or sections from the Old and New Testaments.
Please download our Middle School Brochure for additional details.
