Faith Matters Confirmation is our faith-nurturing program for youth in the 6th through the 9th grades.  Faith Matters consists of learning events, service events, fellowship times, and home involvement.

Living Faith is the theme of our learning events this year. The learning events will focus on The Apostles’ Creed and The Lord’s Prayer. Each learning event includes: opening ice-breaker, a theme presentation and Bible Study led by the Pastor, and small group discussions.  Future years:
Faith in a Living Christ (2017-2018) Life of Jesus & New Testament
Living Lutheran (2018-2019) Martin Luther & the Lutheran Life
Living the Tradition (2019-2020)  Old Testament and the Ten Commandments

Guides are adult leaders of a small group of confirmands. Their primary purpose is to love our young people and be impact adults for them. A big thank you to our Guides last year:
Sixth grade: Cindy Lustig and Nancy Rosewall
Seventh grade: Jim Pauling
Eighth grade: Laurie Harvey
Ninth grade:  Sheila Davidson and Monika Workman
Events Coordinator and Substitute Guide: Sheila Davidson
