At Oak Knoll, we partner with parents and grandparents to nurture and help 6th-8th graders grow into their Christian vocation as followers of Jesus. After three years of growing in their identity as a "child of God," we celebrate the Rite of Confirmation on Reformation Sunday of their 9th grade year.
Confirmation youth meet Wednesday evenings for Faith Formation from 6-7:30 pm. We hope that through confirmation ministry our students will:
- Grow in their relationship with Jesus.
- Learn the stories of the Bible and grow in their understanding of Lutheran theology
- Connect in meaningful relationships with peers and adults in our faith community
- Develop a solid foundation for further growth in personal faith and involvement in the church and outside of it.
Confirmation youth serve in areas that include Sunday School, acolyting, nursery, ushering and hospitality events. In addition, they are called to serve in areas of their giftedness outside the church community as well. For more information about our confirmation ministry, or to register, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
