Confirmation:
All youth in Grade 7 and older are welcome to be part of our two-year programme.  We focus on the promises made at Baptism to help each other grow in faith and life. This past fall and spring we explored what it means to be a Lutheran Christian, as we marked the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. This fall we are studying the New Testament.
