Confirmation begins at 7th grade and is a three-year program culminating in the Rite of Confirmation the first Sunday in May of the 9th grade year. Confirmation is held on Wednesday nights with a meal at 6:00-6:30 and then class from 6:30-7:30. Class begins with a half hour of large group presentation followed by small group sharing and conversation. The 2016-2017 year will focus on the Small Catechism (The Ten Commandments, Lord’s Prayer, Apostle’s Creed and Sacraments). Feel free to download and print this years schedule:
Confirmation is a fulfillment of our Baptismal Covenant by making our youth into responsible and caring adults of our congregation. Wednesday evenings are about growing in Christ!
Many Luther League members are Videographers during Sunday morning worship. This means that they tape the services that are later run on cable access. Yet another way that our youth give back to our congregation!
We meet once a month for events. These can include anything from game or movie nights, trips, community service projects, or other fellowship fun.
Good Earth Village
Our church has strong ties with Good Earth Village and we have many campers that go there every year. Greenfield Lutheran understands the importance of summer camp to the spiritual growth of our youth and provide generous “camperships” every year!
Did you know that 70% of pastors attribute their experiences at summer camp to be the reason they go into ministry? GEV is also home to the Confirmation Kick-Off that our 9th graders attend at the beginning of the Confirmation year. We are pleased to share that our youth always stand apart from the crowd with their maturity and leadership (but we might just be biased)!
