The Confirmation Program for 6th – 9th graders at Gloria Dei involves

Learning, Service, Fellowship, and Worship.

Lutheran Rose
These four areas of ministry are major facets in the life of a disciple of Jesus Christ. During Confirmation, students learn to make these facets a part of their own lives. The goals of the Confirmation ministry are that students come to affirm their Baptismal faith, become equipped to live as disciples in the world, develop a Christian community of peers and adults, and connect faith with life. This will be taught using re:form curriculum  from Spark House. Questions? Contact Pastor Sarah

You can feed 6th/7th/8th Grade Confirmation from our calendar
to your device and keep up with us all year. It works great to be able to look at the topic for the week on the calendar in the event description and then ask your student, specific questions about the topic; instead of “What did you talk about at confirmation tonight?”

Please prayerfully consider leading a group of confirmation students through their small group lessons, three Wednesday evenings a month. All materials, with questions and answers, are provided for all leaders. This is a great place for the parents of confirmation students to get involved, but not limited to those parents. All adult members are welcome to lead. We welcome team leaders, so grab a spouse or a friend and sign-up today. Contact Pat Zoerink
