Connections (6th) & Confirmation (7th-9th)
Connections (gr 6) lessons focus on bible verses, prayer, the Apostle's Creed, and what it means to have a relationship with Jesus. Within that framework, we look at how our faith can affect everything we do in our daily lives.
Confirmation engages students in grades 7-9 and focuses on faith formation. This ministry prepares them to Affirm their Baptism the fall of their 10th grade year. Confirmands participate in formal lessons, fellowship, service and mission, and mentor relationships.
Confirmation is the affirmation of an individual’s baptism..Confirmands prepare themselves to live out the five promises of baptism, as outlined in the liturgy for the Affirmation of Baptism in the Lutheran Book of Worship. (Evangelical Lutheran Worship, page 236.)
We are to “...live among God’s faithful people; hear the word of God and share in the Lord’s Supper; proclaim the good news of God in Christ through word and deed; serve all people following the example of Jesus; and strive for justice and peace in all the earth.”

Wednesday Meal Schedule
MAKING THE NIGHT EASIER!
If it’s not Mentor Night, It’s Pizza Night
Wednesday nights no longer have to be a rush. With school activities and church on the same night, we know it’s hard to fit everything in. On the nights when Connections and Confirmation meet, we will continue to offer a full meal on Mentor nights and all other Wednesdays offer pizza. Gather with friends and families for a light meal, faith, and fellowship.
Lent begins on February 26, Ash Wednesday. Mid-week Meal and Worship Leader Schedules are below. Thank you to 6-9th graders for your leadership during Lent!
