Middle School / Confirmation

Middle School Ministry

Confirming faith is discovering more deeply what has always been known and that which was made visible in baptism – that we are God’s beloved children.  We are privileged to walk with you Together on the Journey.

Our goal is for youth to connect Faith to life, to become disciples/servants of Christ, to gain knowledge of Lutheran traditions and to develop and nurture their relationships with peers, parents and their faith community.

Summer Camp 2022

This summer’s theme at Ox Lake in Amery, WI was TAKE HOLD from John 16:33.  Campers had a blast playing, singing, making crafts, worshipping and developing friendships while learning how Jesus’ great love provides us with peace in times of trouble.  We can ‘take hold’ because Jesus has conquered the world.

Prayer Pals

The great joy of our Prayer Pal ministry is that it provides an opportunity for stories to be shared. We are given space to share our story, listen to others’ stories, and see how we are all connected to God’s story.  Prayer Pals meet during Advent & Lent and pray for each other all year.

Service Learning Projects & Events

Relationships are very important while walking on our faith journey!  Event Ministry opportunities help kids “do” their faith when they are having fun and serving with other kids and adults.

Youth in Worship

A core component of Confirm†Faith is engaging youth with Sunday morning worship. Throughout the year youth will have the opportunity to serve as acolytes, ushers, readers and greeters.
