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.

January Confirmation Service Project

January 12, 9:10 a.m.: We will be making and packaging homemade dog treats to donate to The Street Dog Coalition (SDC). The SDC is an outreach in Fort Collins that gives free veterinary care to the beloved pets of homeless and home-insecure people. Often, these people's pets are their only source of unconditional love and a sense of purpose. The Street Dog Coalition reaches the hearts of the humans through caring for their animals. We will help them do that in this small but significant way! Meet in the kitchen at Bethlehem Lutheran at 9:10 a.m. Contact Deaconess Kristen (kristen@bethlehem-lutheran.net) with any questions.


Mentor Ministry Creation Activity

January 12, 11:30 a.m.–1:30 p.m.: Mentors and Mentees will gather together for a time of activity and reflection on how things all started. There will be a field trip involved in this activity, so please sign the Liability Waiver. Bring a lunch to eat at church before we depart. Mentors, please RSVP to Deaconess Sarah or Deaconess Kristen on behalf of you and your mentee by January 10.


Rocky Mountain Synod Youth Gathering (RMSYG)

January 18–20: Please keep the students and adults who are attending the RMSYG in your prayers for a great event. Adult leaders are Deaconess Kristen and Lee Weyers. We will be joining First Lutheran as one big "First Bethlehem" group. Additionally, Pastor Katie and Chili are two of the chaplains/speakers for the event!
