Confirmation instruction is a two-year intensive study opportunity for 7th and 8th graders.  Weekly hour-long classes (September to May, Sunday evenings 6:00 - 7:15 pm) led by the Pastor and the Director of Youth and Family focus on the study of Scripture and Luther’s Small Catechism.  The program culminates in each child’s public affirmation of the promises made at the child’s baptism. 

 Put another way . . .   it’s a chance to ‘dig deeper’ into the meaning of the Bible, to ‘re-consider’ how we can be part of the greater Lutheran church, to get to know other kids in the parish a bit better, to establish a trusting relationship with adults who care deeply about religion and deeply about kids. The curriculum is a 2 year program using Colaborate: Lutheran Confirmation (www.wearesparkhouse.org/teens/colaborate/lutheran.  For more information be in touch with the Pastor or the Director of Youth and Family.

Youth Group consists of students in grades 9-12. A Sunday morning education hour is enhanced by service, both in house and outside. Such projects include making centerpieces and desserts for our monthly Senior Luncheon, Easter Baskets for young mothers and their children at Florence House, luncheon events with the residents of Emmanuel Village, and college care packages for our own students. Youth Group also engages in other fun activities like; Youth Quake, the ELCA’s Youth Gathering, and other seasonal events.
