  Middle School  
Confirmation
Confirmation is a sacred right where one affirms their Christian belief and is welcomed as “a full member” into their church.  Confirmation is an affirmation and public declaration of faith!  It means that a student takes on the responsibilities of the promises made by adults at their baptism.  Confirmation is a process.

At St. Paul's our Confirmation process is a three year ministry specifically tailored for middle school students in 6th through 8th grade. 
On the second and fourth Wednesday of each month during the school year middle school students and adult mentors gather to engage in intentional community and to teach and share about faith traditions, faith practices and faith life as part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.  Confirmation is a milestones in the life of faith and we hope and encourage participation in the life of faith at St. Paul’s.

If you or someone you know is interested in Confirmation please contact Youth@GROWwithJesus.org.
