Confirmation Classes 2023-24

Confirmation classes for 7th and 8th graders meet during the school year once a week, three times a month as a Christ Lutheran group and once with other ELCA churches in our Conference. In addition, there will be opportunities for our junior and senior highschoolers to come together for Worship, service, and fellowship!
Our focus for 2023-24 is the New Testament stories, the Our Father, and the Ten Commandments, and Confirmation Students are actively participating in Worship and community service.


Class officially begins this year on Sunday, September 17, at 11:30am, with a lunch after Worship.

Individual Community Service Details

What the student does, and when, and where, are completely up to the student and their family, with the following guidelines:

  • The student cannot be paid for their time
  • It must be something that serves an individual or household, or an organization that contributes to the community, or adds to the well-being of the neighborhood or community
  • The student will ask the person they are serving, or a parent/guardian, to sign a form verifying the service they have done and how much time they contributed


Ideas for Individual Service include:

  • Community clean up (park, street, parking lot, etc)
  • Collecting canned goods in the neighborhood to be given to the food shelf
  • Snow shoveling or yard work for a neighbor who needs this assistance
  • Volunteering at the humane society or other animal shelter
