Confirmation

St. John's Confirmation program instructs the student in the study of God's word and Lutheran Doctrine, equips them to become disciples serving in the community and our church, and empowers them to develop attitudes like that of Chris Jesus our Lord.

  

"I gained a deeper understanding of being a Christian in the world today. One of my favorite parts about confirmation was being able to worship and learn in a fun environment around my peers. The small groups were a great way to share and connect."

St. John's Confirmation program instructs the student in the study of God's word and Lutheran Doctrine, equips them to become disciples serving in the community and our church, and empowers them to develop attitudes like that of Christ Jesus our Lord. 

The Confirmation program is designed for students in 8th grade. However, students who are slightly younger or older have been accepted into the program. The program is completely separate from the school. Confirmation is not the graduation ceremony, but a Faith Stepping Stone in our youth's personal faith journey and enables them to take ownership of their faith, confirm what they believe in, and become members of St. John's Lutheran Church.

There are 6 components that make-up our Confirmation Program 1) Regular worship attendance - 2x a month. 2) serving 6 times throughout the year as an acolyte. 3) Attend 7 Large Group Teaching Sessions. 4) Attend 7 Small Group Fellowship Sessions hosted by parents 5) Complete 2 service projects; 1 as a small group and 1 as a whole Confirmation class 6) Attend the Confirmation Retreat at Thousand Pines Camp.

Sanctuary Acolyte Sign-ups

The word acolyte means a “companion” or “one who helps.” As an acolyte, you will be serving as a companion or helper to the pastor: performing a number of important functions before, during, and at the close of the Sunday worship services such as lighting altar candles and helping with communion. On special Sunday's, acolytes will help carry in the crucifix and torches.
