At Cross and Resurrection, Confirmation class is a two year program for middle school aged children. We have a few simple goals:
—we use a curriculum based on Luther’s Small Catechism, Martin Luther’s great contribution to the Christian faith and serves as a model for most confirmation programs. We cover:
—we want the young people to know the Lord. We learn to actually pray, we have retreats together, we encourage the youth to go to a week-long camp called Pine Hills Camp.
We feel that confirmation class should be something the youth look forward to. We take time off and go out for donuts, we have some retreat time together. And we have our quiz bowl – dividing up into teams to answer both easy and tough questions.
We do our best to make this accessible to all, including those with special needs.
