Faith Formation

 

Confirmation Ministry

 

 

 Confirmation ministry helps prepare  young people to affirm their baptism in the rite of Confirmation, by helping them understand who they are as baptized children of God, teaching them about what it it means to be Lutheran Christians, and helping them to live out their faith in daily life.  

 

Our confirmation ministry is a two year program that includes classes, retreats, regular participation in worship, service projects, and a relationship with an adult mentor.  Typically, students begin confirmation during their middle school years.

 

We study the basics of the faith and the biblical story, and learn more about our Lutheran identity and heritage.   Confirmation provides a safe space to ask hard questions, have fun, and grow in faith.

Sunday School

Sunday School for all ages is offered weekly from 9:00-9:50 a.m. Classes for children meet in the Educational Wing, and include music, Bible story, crafts, and activities.  The discussion-style adult class meets in the back of the Family Life Center.  Recent topics have included the book of Romans and the book of Revelation. 

 

Youth Ministry

We offer monthly fellowship events for youth and families, such as movie nights, a summer cookout and bonfire, an annual Halloween party and hayride, attending Christian concerts, and trips to local amusement parks.

 

The youth also participate in several community service projects each year, such as a sleepout for the homeless and making cookies and Christmas cards for nursing home residents and homebound members.

 

Our senior high youth participate in the triennial ELCA Youth Gathering.  The next Gathering will be in June, 2018 in Houston, Texas!

Vacation Bible School

We work together with four other local congregations in the Bloserville Fellowship to provide a Vacation Bible School each June.
