The Confirmation Program for 6th – 10th 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
