Grades 8 & 9- AFFIRM 2020

Confirmation

Room 31

Grade 8-9

With the support of parents and caring adults, 8th and 9th graders begin their 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 starts in the Fall of 2018 and ends on Sunday, February 16, 2020. 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 2020 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 2020) Participation in BOTH mandatory retreats with a pastor is required - our first one for this group was November 16-18, 2018  and our final 2nd mandatory retreat is November 15-17, 2019.
