7th & 8th Grade

Confirmation

Our Confirmation Program helps fulfill our Mission Statement by connecting youth to Christ, our community and each other through a number of events.

In the Junior High (7th & 8th graders) Confirmation program, students and their small group mentors meet on Wednesday evenings to study scripture and Luther’s Small Catechism and explore ways to connect with Christ through prayer. Assisting with worship and our Wednesday supper program, as well as religious release and service opportunities round out the first two years of our three year confirmation program.

The final step in the Confirmation program begins with 9th grade and culminates with the Confirmation ceremony on Reformation Sunday (October) of the 10th grade year.  It has a variety of components including worship attendance and assisting, a faith mentor, Wednesday gatherings, retreats and mini-courses.

A great way to meet people, hang with friends, have fun, and do something important during your summer.

Summer Mission Trip

Each summer a mission trip is planned for 7th and 8th graders.

Here’s the deal: We think that every teenager should experience a mission trip that values relationships, respects communities and connects the hands of service with the heart of Jesus. Again and again we see quality mission trip experiences show students how to use their lives to love and value others better.

Generally speaking, this trip is within the Midwest region (ie, Minnesota, South Dakota and Wisconsin) and is roughly a week in length.
