  • Confirmation

    Confirmation is a rite of the Church given to people who confirm their faith in God, Father – Son – Holy Spirit. Students in 7th and 8th grade go deeper into Scripture and Luther’s Small Catechism in order to grow in faith, understanding, and life application of God’s Word. Classes are taught on Wednesday nights, 6 – 7:30pm. Pastor Doria teaches the 8th grade class while Marshall Combs teaches the 7th grade.
