We believe at St. John's, that it is our duty and privilege to help youth to define their faith, speak their faith to others, act out their faith through service and leadership, and grow in their understanding of their faith.

Middle School Ministry


The confirmation program at St. John’s begins as students enter 7th grade and concludes with the Affirmation of Baptism in the fall of 9th grade on Reformation Sunday. Using the Faith Inkubators Head from the Heart curriculum, our program is designed that youth will deepen their faith, learn more about Christ, learn more about what it means to be a Lutheran Christian, and find their place in the Church.

Confirmation meets Wednesday nights from 6:30 – 7:45 in Classrooms A/B in the lower level of the church. We invite any 7th & 8th graders who wish to join Confirmation to please speak with one of our pastors.

5th & 6th graders are included in our Preteen Ministry. Info for this ministry can be found on our Children’s Ministry page.
