Is it possible to have fun while learning? Can confirmation be about heart knowledge as well as head knowlege? 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 Wednesday evenings from 6:30—8:00pm during the school year. Sunday worship attendance and Sunday morning education are also key parts of our program. Students are confirmed in the fall of their freshman year.

Confirmation Points

Confirmation students are expected to actively participate in the life and ministry of the church. To that end, a "point system" has been developed to encourage students to engage in a variety of experiences.

Students will select from the following areas to accumlate a total of 40 points during the program year. Points should come from at least three different areas with half coming from Group A.

Group A (must total 20 from this group):

  1. Sermon Notes -- 2 points
  2. Acolyte -- 2 points (7th graders)
  3. Reader (8th graders) -- 2 points
  4. Communion Assistant (8th graders) -- 2 points
