September 9 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Confirmation Ministry Begins with Orientation Sept. 9 at 6:30; Blessing Service Sep 23 at 10:30 Worship
Another year of confirmation ministry with catechetical instruction begins Sunday, Sep 9, at 6:30 with a “Back to Confir- mation Night” orientation for both youth and parents in the Church Sanctuary where the goals and volunteer opportunities of the program will be reviewed. The class of about 29 seventh and eighth grade youth along with parent Guides will cover Sacra- ments, Lutheran Worship, and the Apostle’s Creed at biweekly Learn Events, and Our Lutheran Heritage at the fall Lock-In Re- treat. They will also receive acolyte training as a part of the re- treat. This program utilizes the Head to the Heart Power Point themes produced by Faith Inkubators. Additional components of the program include:
- Play Events coordinated with the Oasis Youth ministry
- Serve Events ranging from making meals for My Father’s House and Youth Sunday Worship leadership, to serving ei- ther as an acolyte, nursery aide, or singing in the Youth Choir.
- Participation in a Stepping into the Catechism Blessing dur- ing the 10:30 worship on September
Confirmation isn’t just for youth any more. Parents are invited to gather for Learn Events and participate in their own Parent Group for fellowship and rediscovering the faith applica- tions of Luther’s Small Catechism in their daily lives. While this may be a lot to ask of families with extremely full schedules, Pas- tor Wayne strongly believes the most important way to teach faith to our children is to first teach and empower loving adults to model and share the faith with them. In addition, parents have the opportunity to explore what they once learned in confirma- tion from the perspective and life experience of an adult and how that impacts their own faith in daily life.
