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.

Faith in a Living Christ is the theme of our learning events this year. The learning events will focus on The Life of Jesus and The New Testament. Each learning event includes: opening ice-breaker, a theme presentation and Bible Study led by the Pastor, and small group discussions.  Future years:
Living Lutheran (2018-2019) Martin Luther & the Lutheran Life
Living the Tradition (2019-2020)  Old Testament and the Ten Commandments
Living Faith  (2020-2021) The Apostles’ Creed and the Lord’s Prayer

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: Lori Schiebe and
Seventh grade: Cindy Lustig and Nancy Rosewall
Eighth grade: Jim Pauling
Ninth grade:  Laurie Harvey
