Middle School Confirmation
The schedule for 2017-2018:
Class meets the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Family Huddles take place the first Sunday of each month during the education hour at 10:00 a.m.
Catechism is a two year program that focuses on learning important scripture stories, understanding Luther’s Small Catechism, and how these connect to our daily lives. Students meet in class twice each month, with family homework assignments in between and a monthly “family huddle” where students and parents meet together. Students also work through the year with an adult mentor from within the congregation.
The middle school confirmation instruction program at Beautiful Savior is for students in grades seventh – eighth. Students in this age group are going through a large transition as they move from the lower elementary grades, so we work to provide a learning space that is accepting and relaxing and helps them to meet new friends and gain new understanding as they grow in God’s love.
We want our young people to experience all aspects of the Christian faith from reading and understanding scripture to learning our Christian and Lutheran history and what it means to apply it in their daily lives. Our confirmation instruction prepares our middle school students to become adult members of our Christian community. Together our young students are encouraged and supported as they explore their faith and solidify their understanding of being Christian.
Our youth gather from time to time to enjoy fun and fellowship. From roller skating to rock climbing, we love getting together with our middle school group.
