Word of Peace partners with parents to provide 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th graders an opportunity to connect their faith to their daily lives, serve God's people, study Martin Luther's catechism, and prepare students to reaffirm their baptism promises in 9th grade.
Confirmation takes place on Wednesday evenings at two different times.
Early Groups meet from 5:30-7 PMLate Groups meet from 6:30-8 PM
The time group your child attends will depend on the group time you selected on your registration form.
Twice a month, Confirmation students attend a large group learning time that includes music, games, skits, and a weekly lesson taught by a pastor. Students also meet in small groups of 6-8 peers that are led by an adult volunteer guide.
Once a month, small groups participate in a fellowship event or a servant event. Fellowship events are a time to have fun and get to know one another and servant events are a time for students to serve God's world by helping people in our community.
Paper registration forms are available outside the Youth Ministry office.

Paper registration forms are available outside the Children's Ministry office.
