Our Confirmation Ministry is a two-year program for 7th and 8th grade students. Throughout the two years, students will study Old and New Testament stories, and the Small Catechism. They will also go on several field trips around Kansas City that relate to the things we are learning in class. At the end of the two years, in the fall of their freshman year, our students go through the rite of Confirmation. With the help of our amazing small group leaders, we provide our youth will a full and well-balanced theological education. They also have many opportunities to build relationships with each other and the community around them. Below are some of the things our students are students enjoy.
Confirmation class meets in the Gathering Place on Sunday mornings, September – May, from 9:45-10:45am. Our students are in small groups with two adult leaders. In these groups, we engage in large-group and small-group conversations about the topic of the day. We learn from Scripture, the Catechism, and one another. Contact Eric Foerster for questions.
Wednesday Night “Hang Nights” – On break til late August.
Confirmation students gather at Atonement from 7:00-8:30pm for an evening of fun, faith, and fellowship. This is a great time for our students to build relationships with each other outside the classroom. Email Eric for details.
Confirmation Camp – Canceled for 2020 because of pandemic
Every summer, our Confirmation students spend a week together at camp. We spend the week doing special confirmation lessons in the mornings, and regular camp activities the rest of the day. Our youth enjoy being together in the outdoors, and always have a blast at camp swimming, hiking, boating, crafting, and so much more. Visit with Eric for more.
