Confirmation

Is it possible to have fun while learning? Can confirmation be about heart knowledge as well as head knowledge? We think so! Read on to learn more . . .

The Confirmation program at Good Shepherd is for students in 7th and 8th grades. We use the Head to the Heart program created by Faith Inkubators, which focuses on serving, learning and having fun. Confirmation classes are held on Sunday mornings from 9:15-10:15am during the school year. In addition, students attend a monthly peer group meeting for more in-depth sharing and a monthly Fun or Serving Event. Students are confirmed in the fall of their freshman year.
