Confirmation is a journey to affirming the baptism that brought us into the church, but students don't have to be baptized to participate. Our program is for 7th and 8th grade students who want to start the process of learning what it means to have faith and to claim that faith for themselves.
In our Confirmation program our theme is Story. We use a curriculum written by our student minister, that follows the chronological story of our faith tradition, from creation to Jesus, from Luther to our modern era, emphasizing the tenets of Luther's Small Catechism along the way. We hope to communicate to our students that our tradition is living and active today, and it involves far more than rote ritual or regurgitated knowledge. In order to do this, we take three vantage points: God's Story, Our Story, and Your Story. By telling stories and allowing students to tell their own story, we hope to lead them to a personal decision to affirm their baptism, and to a rich, lifelong engagement with their faith.
Every week we gather for interactive learning, immersive games, and engaging discussions. We take a monthly trip to our local ice cream shop to build our relationships, and chart our journeys. We celebrate our work with parties and gatherings. Oh, and did we mention we eat pizza?
Faith was never meant to be done alone. Adolescence is difficult enough without adding in questions of faith, doubt, morals, ethics, eternity and the like. At every stage of life we need a loving community and support to safely navigate life's tough decisions and experiences. Our Adopt-A-Confirmand program is an open and relational approach to cultivating discipleship in our larger church community.
