Why do we do this?
Confirmation ministry at Faith Lutheran is one of the most important elements of our faith formation program.
Students in 7th, 8th, and 9th Grade are on the edge of independence. They are ready to think for themselves and learn and absorb the lessons of the Bible, to evaluate and experience how God is with each and everyone of them in everyday life.
 
Living Faithful Lives
Confirmation is not an ending of the faith-forming process, nor is it a graduation. Rather the day on which each young person is confirmed is a send off to lives of more grown up faith.
In the spring of their 9th Grade year, these young people will stand in front of their Faith Lutheran family to publicly “take ownership” of their own faith. Each of the young people is supported on this journey of faith in personal and trusted relationships. Each will experience caring conversation and faith talk with their parents, peers, Small Group guide, their mentor and church staff.
 
It is our intent to make Ignite as meaningful and memorable for 7th, 8th & 9th grade students as we can.  This spring, we’ve done lots of evaluating and planning.  We take our role very seriously.  Faith Lutheran partners with parents in the formation of the faith for our children.  We need to reach them where they are.  We guide them as they explore faith in personal and trusted relationships. Using the Bible, technology, games and active learning activities, each week’s meeting will be a new adventure.
