Middle School

Confirmation Discipleship is the journey our 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students go on to decide if they are going to affirm their baptismal vows and later be commissioned by our congregation for service in the world in Jesus’ name. If a student has not been baptized then this process will culminate in that sacrament.

Our 3 year cycle of curriculum involves study of Scripture, the Apostles Creed, Ten commandments, and the Lord’s prayer alongside a mentor from the congregation. Confirmation Discipleship is roughly a 2-3 year process that could go longer or shorter depending on how quickly students work through their packets with their mentors and set up a time to affirm their baptisms publicly.

  • Youth choose to either continue acolyting or serve in worship in some other capacity.
