Grades 8 & 9 - AFFIRM 2018
Grade 8 & 9
With the support of parents and caring adults, 8 & 9 graders begin a 2 year journey together to prepare to make an educated commitment to their faith. Youth are encouraged to ask questions, review and connect bibles stories and delve deeper into their spiritual life. We explore spirituality, sexuality and discipleship.
This confirmation process focuses on developing an integrated, holistic faith. This is a 2-year commitment that started in the Fall of 2016 and ends on Transfiguration Sunday, February 11, 2018. It is designed for youth to make a choice to affirm their faith in the Lutheran Tradition. Youth may choose to particpate in the activities and retreats without being on the AFFIRM 2018 track. Pastors, staff and mentors continue to emphasize our grace-based faith trek as a never-ending, always growing, learning and sharing journey with Christ. For Confirmation (AFFIRM 2018) Participation in BOTH mandatory retreats with a pastor is required - our first one for this group is November 4-6, 2016 and the following one is tentatively scheduled for November 3-5, 2017
