Confirmation- Engaging faith
During the three years of confirmation, middle school youth continue their faith journey — learning what it means to be a Christian, what make us Lutheran, and what it means to live out our faith in daily life. At Hosanna the Confirmation program is not a sacrament nor a requirement but, it is another opportunity for middle school youth to grow together and develop a faith that sticks with them for a lifetime. Think of confirmation as an intentional youth group- where young people can feel like they BELONG, discover their IDENTITY- who God has made them to be and that they can make a difference all in Christ's name!
During the fall of 9th grade, students who intend to affirm their faith will have a weekend retreat to walk through “what’s next” in their faith journey as well as complete a Confirmation Expression Project to present on Confirmation Sunday in the Fall. Confirmation services are held during worship services on Reformation Weekend, October 29, 2017.
Schedule and program details, Lenten Mentor details, and guide information are below.
