Confirmation & Middle School

Engaging Young Minds


We provide a two year comprehensive confirmation program for students in 7th and 8th grades. Classes meet every other Tuesday. This group will also meet virtually after the video worship service has ended from 10:30 - 11:00am Sundays.  The Sunday class is a requirement for confirmation students.

The program includes overnight retreats and Campfirmation—a week at Augustana College where students learn and interact with other Lutheran 8th graders from across the state. 


Confirmation students are encouraged to partake in various service activities and serve as acolytes and nursery attendants.

In addition, there are a variety of activities including overnights and adventures led by Youth Director, Doug Dusthimer.

Worship is at the center of the Word and Sacrament life of our church. We regularly have communion as a part of our worship. All are welcome to come worship our Lord Jesus Christ with us.  Read more
