Confirmation

Faith Formation in Pandemic Times

During this time in our world where we cannot come together in person to worship or participate in faith formation activities at church, I am reminded that the most influential people in developing faith in our children are their parents. Despite the many things that pull our children in so many directions, it is the words and actions of parents that run the deepest in our children's minds and hearts.

As the world around us is chaotic and crazy, our children will be looking to their parents to help make sense of it all. What a wonderful opportunity to reiterate the message of God's love and grace that surpasses everything. And to share the message that God walks with us through suffering and uncertainty.

Confirmation Overview

Is it possible to have fun while learning? Can confirmation be about heart knowledge as well as head knowledge? We think so! Read on to learn more . . .

The Confirmation program at Good Shepherd is for students in 7th and 8th grades. Our program focuses on serving, learning and having fun. Confirmation classes are held on Sunday mornings during the Education Hour. In addition, students attend a monthly Group Learning for more in-depth sharing and a monthly Fun or Serving Event. Students are confirmed in the fall of their freshman year.
