Confirmation (Grades 7-9)
Wednesdays, starting September 19 | 6:45-8:00 pm
Confirmation is a Wednesday night community for students in grades 7, 8, and 9. After three years in the Confirmation community, the Rite of Confirmation (Affirmation of Baptism) is celebrated in the fall of grade 10 during a Sunday worship service. Confirmation is a time for relationship, outreach, community and growth in the knowledge of who God is and how God is working in the world.
Confirmation meets on Wednesday evenings from 6:45-8:00 pm. Confirmation normally meets in "large group" first with 7th, 8th and 9th graders for a time of worship, music, and announcements, followed by "Core Classes" which are split into grades and small groups and focus on the STORY (Grade 7), PRACTICE (Grade 8) and WITNESS (Grade 9) of our faith.
Normandale Youth Mental Health & Wellness Awareness & Advocacy Month
It's OK to Not be OK. Let's stand together and work towards breaking the stigma and the silence surrounding mental health.
Confirmation in February will start with a kick-off movie viewing for youth and families about anxiety, and continue throughout the month with Confirmation electives led by professionals on stress, anxiety, depression, and social media.
