Confirmation is a three year program for 6, 7 and 8th graders that meets August - April on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8pm. In the fall of the 9th grade year we conclude the program with the Affirmation of Baptism Confirmation service. In 2019 Confirmation weekend will be October 26-27, 2019.
Throughout the three years of instruction the Lutheran Study Bible is our main a"text" book. We study God's word, form relationships with caring adults, enjoy fellowship, and explore faith together through both large and small group settings. Our current course of study includes the biblical witness in the Old Testament and the New Testament, the Apostle’s Creed, the Ten Commandments, the Lord’s Prayer, the sacraments of Holy Communion and Baptism, our Lutheran identity as well as a few other pertinent teenage topics such as media, relationships and love, stewardship, and serving our neighbors. We also understand that families move, and students may need to start in the program mid-year or mid-course. We work with each family to make it work for your student.
This year we will also have "Sundaes on Wednesdays" from 7-8pm on a few of our Wednesday evenings where families are invited to join their confirmation students in making ice cream sundaes and growing in faith together. Members of the congregation will also be invited to join in these evenings. If your students will be missing a week please be in communication with your students Guide or the Leadership Team so we are not wondering about their absence. We wish to provide support and prayers for any reason they may miss being with us. Be sure that you are connected through our REALM app to get updates about confirmation and stay in the loop on any changes for weather.
Soon you can see the 2019-2020 year-at-a-glance Confirmation Calendar HERE to let you know what we will study and the dates we are meeting.
All confirmation students are encouraged to attend both the Rocky Mountain Synod middle school youth gathering held each January and also a week long adventure with Rainbow Trail Lutheran Camp each summer.
In 2020 there will be another Middle School and High School Youth Gathering and we will share information once we have it.
We will attend Confirmation Camp WEEK #2 in the summer of 2020 registration and information will be posted here when it is becomes available..
We have an annual fee of $30 to help cover the costs of curriculum and such incurred during the program year.
Please note: Annual fee and gathering payments may be made via check to Lord of the Hills OR via the Give link found above. Camp payments go directly to RTLC. Lord of the Hills never wants finances to prevent a youth from getting to participate. If you are in need of financial assistance for these activities please reach out to Pastor Margot and we will do our best to make this a reality for your youth!
Also check out our Middle School Youth Group! They have monthly gatherings such as gaga ball tournaments and service projects, an annual Laser Quest lock-in and other events.
All youth and caring adults who participate in Lord of the Hills Lutheran Church activities need to complete an annual Health & Medical Release Form. Please see the links below in quick links.
