A page just for our Confirmation class students and families.
(LIVE! lessons posted on tab 2 of this page, 2020-21 Lessons)
Welcome 6th, 7th, & 8th grade parents to Confirmation 2020-2021!
Most importantly, ThanX for your support. Really! For what you have done to grow your child’s faith and what you will do! Thank you and never stop being amazing. Faith’s confirmation program is for your child. However it does not succeed without your continued support and guidance.
Lots of differences for our confirmation program this year. The mentors and I want to make this as useful and valuable as possible. Our quick schedule and descriptions are below.
Starting October 7th and continuing through May 26th:
- 1st Wednesdays of the month: Confirmation LIVE!
- 2nd Wednesdays of the month: Confirmation MENTORS!
- 3rd Wednesday of the month: Confirmation LIVE!
- 4th Wednesday of the month: Confirmation FAMILY!
Your child will join us online as we learn about Luther’s Small Catechism. I (Troy Tadych) will be leading the 30 minute session from 6:15pm to 6:45pm. I will try to keep it fun and quick. Please tune in with your child if you are available. We will use Google Meet for these LIVE! sessions. (All the kids should be comfortable with this platform as they use it at school.) Every 1st and 3rd Wednesday they can join us at the provided link.
On the 2nd Wednesday the mentors take over. Look for communication from them soon about what they will be planning. The mentors will cover Highs-And-Lows as well as other activities to strengthen the lessons about Luther’s Small Catechism. You will hear from your mentors soon about expectations and how you will connect.
The 4th Wednesday is all about families. The mentors and I will give you a few tools. However, what I really want to encourage is good conversation between you and your child. Dive into those Highs-and-Lows; Jump into questions about Sunday Services; Bring the whole family together to just… be together. Make it your personal evening and make it special.
Again, ThanX. Let me know problems you have, technical or anything else.
About Faith’s Confirmation program (with Pastoral Care)…
Faith Lutheran Church’s Confirmation program is a three year curriculum for sixth through eighth graders. The curriculum prepares the students to become an adult member of the church via their confirmation in the fall of their ninth grade year, some details are covered on this Orientation sheet. Roughly every Wednesday night during the school year, the students meet at 5:45 at Faith for a lesson, family activity, or other event, and that goes until around 7:15.
