Currently our Middle School and High School youth help with the younger children’s learning time or participate in the adult choir that practices at that time. On Sunday afternoons at 4:30 these youth gather for fellowship and devotions.
This is a two year program, typically during the 7th and 8th grade years, with Affirmation of Baptism (confirmation) taking place on Reformation Sunday after all requirements are met. We meet 4 times per year on Sunday afternoons for classes. Each student is also required to attend one summer of confirmation camp at Lutheridge camp, as well as work with a faith mentor throughout their two years. We do NOT believe that this is a graduation from church, but instead it is another Milestone in the faith journey where a young person has the opportunity to learn and explore how to better articulate their faith. This is NOT a requirement in the Lutheran church, but it is highly encouraged as an important part of learning and growing together.
Sometimes we all need to get away from the every day to reconnect with God and learn about how beautifully and wonderfully we are made — what better place than in creation! Calvary partners primarily with Novus Way Ministries (Lutheridge, Lutherock, Lutheranch, and Luthersprings) and Camp Agape to provide these opportunities to our youth.
