Middle school and Confirmation


Middle school and confirmation: grades 6-8

ff WritingHandBible 1Confirmation Ministry at Bethlehem Lutheran Church is a three year ministry program for youth in grades 6, 7 and 8. Over the three years, they will study the Ten Commandments, the Apostle's Creed, the Lord's Prayer, the Old and New Testaments of scripture and cover topics relevant to living a life of faith in current times. Students meet on Wednesday nights and Sunday mornings throughout the school year. Additionally, each Confirmation Student is assigned an adult Mentor who walks alongside them for the entire three year period. The Rite of Affirmation of Baptism is traditionally celebrated in worship at the end of the 8th grade year for those who wish to affirm their faith. Contact Deaconess Kristen (kristen@bethlehem-lutheran.net) with any questions.

Confirmation Service Project—Homeless Outreach Bags

We had that whole wagon full from "God's Work Our Hands." Day, and it is officially empty now! So, with the coming colder temps, bags with socks, gloves, chapstick, and pocket warmers, plus soft granola bars, protein items (tuna, etc), comb, and toothbrush/paste, could be quite helpful to hand to folks who are in need. The confirmation class will be gathering and assembling bags to have ready for our community to take with them out into the world. Please consider supporting their efforts by bringing in donations and placing them in the collection bench marked "Confirmation Project: Homeless Outreach Bags". We will collect through November 9. Thank you for your support! Please contact Deaconess Kristen with any questions.
