Confirmation Parent Meeting on August 28, 2022 right 10:30 service

Summer break is coming to an end and school is just around the corner. That means, now is the time to talk about our Confirmation Program!

I take St. John's Youth Ministry, our mission statement, and the Confirmation Program very seriously. Confirmation is an important time in the life of a teen and his or her family. A time to get to know what their faith life is really about. A time to become acquainted with Holy Scripture and our Lutheran theological history. A time to prepare to stand in front of the church and proclaim our faith is their faith!!

I am excited to share some details for St John Confirmation Ministry, give you a few dates for your calendar, and invite you to join our first meeting!

Some Basics

  • I am honored to teach our Confirmation Classes! 
  • Confirmation is a 2-year program. The two years alternate between being a year focused on the Bible and a year focused on our Lutheran Heritage. This year will be a Luther year, the next year will be the Bible year.
  • Students normally enter the program at the beginning of their 7th-grade year and get confirmed in the Spring of their 8th-grade year.
  • We will of course welcome new families and students into the program at any time, as our congregation grows.

If you have a confirmation student in your family, please join me in the Fellowship Hall for a brief Parent and Student meeting, August 28th at 11:40 AM (Right after the 10:30 service).

We will discuss the calendar, the requirements, and expectations of confirmation students and families

See you there, God Bless, 

Pastor Jay
