Confirmation is meaningful to our life in Christ when youth, parents, pastors, staff, and all members of the congregation actively participate. Students begin Confirmation in 6th Grade and are confirmed in October of their 9th Grade year. What an exciting gift to live in Christ together as a community of faith-we are blessed to be part of your child’s faith journey!
Confirmation meets Wednesday nights, not including holidays or breaks from school. 6th, 7th and 8th grades rotate between 5:30-6:20 pm, 7:30-8:20 pm, and Small Group Time, with Worship services at 6:30 pm every Wednesday. Confirmation Parents are asked to sign up as Table Leaders with each lesson.
9th Grade Confirmation:
Our 9th Graders will be Confirmed Saturday & Sunday, October 24 & 25. Please CLICK HERE for more information.
Why Join Confirmation? Let our 8th Graders Tell You:
“This is the question to ask yourself before joining. We are two 8th graders about to be confirmed and we have the answers. We joined confirmation because our parents signed us up. But, we stayed because it added a weekly renewal of faith into our lives. Confirmation was something to look forward to every week. It was not stressful, or demanding, but just fun. One of our favorite parts of confirmation was Pastor Bob. We loved his stories and lessons, and the way he went about teaching us. Good Shepherd has a wonderful youth program that focuses on the love of God and creating a more positive environment for everyone. Confirmation is a great way to make new friends and strengthen your relationship with God. It is a once a week activity that is expense free for all. Trips that are available include Camp of the Cross, rafting, canoeing, etc. They are SUPER fun and another great reason to join confirmation. These trips cost money, but if money is a problem our church will help out. Also, lock-in’s happen at least once a year and are not something you want to miss. They are filled with candy, (just as every confirmation class at Good Shepherd is!) movies, games, and fun! Overall confirmation is definitely worth your time. From weekly meetings to fun summer trips there are many reasons to join confirmation. So now when you think about joining confirmation or why you joined confirmation you have the answers.”
