Confirmation is an opportunity to learn and understand the Scriptures, Lutheran theology, Church history and other areas of study to increase knowledge of our church’s faith and practice. Confirmation studies occur using a class retreat“lock-in” from Friday night through Saturday morning.
Held at the church, dinner is served and snacks shared. There is always a game or other fun activity as part of our time together. When the weather is nice, there is a group bike ride or games on the church's large backyard field. The Confirmation class also visits other denominations so the we have a better understanding of our neighbors as part of God’s wonderful family. There is no cost to participate in Confirmation.
