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 Lutheran is the theme of our learning events this year. The learning events will focus on Martin Luther and The Lutheran Life. Each learning event includes: opening ice-breaker, a theme presentation and Bible Study led by the Pastor, and small group discussions.  Future years:
Living the Tradition (2019-2020)  Old Testament and the Ten Commandments
Living Faith  (2020-2021) The Apostles’ Creed and the Lord’s Prayer
Faith in a Living Christ  (2021-2022)  Life of Jesus and the New Testament

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. We are still looking for two guides for the coming year.  A big thank you to our Guides this year:
Sixth grade: ?
Seventh grade: ?
Eighth grade: Chris Ismil & Julie Spiering
Ninth grade:  Cindy Lustig & Nancy Rosewall
