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 from 6:30-7:30. Class begins with a half hour of large group presentation followed by small group sharing and conversation.
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!
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)!
