Middle School (Grades 5-8)
During the school year:
Sunday morning 9:30-10:30 Students are separated by grade and learn what we believe, teach, and confess at Lutherans. We focus on Old Testament lessons in the fall, New Testament lesson in the spring. Bring your Bible, notebook and open heart!
Wednesday night 6:00-7:30 5th, 6th and 7th graders start in the auditorium as a large group praising Jesus Christ in song. Then we break into small groups of 6-8 kids with an adult leader who leads discussion on how we can apply biblical truths in practical ways.

High School Small Groups (Grades 9-12)

The confirmation program for 8th-grade students has three objectives:
- Ensure that students understand the teachings and beliefs of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod.
- Foster an individual, relevant relationship between the student and Jesus Christ that he or she can profess and begin modeling in daily life.
- Transition the 8th-grade student from Middle School into the High School ministry and beyond.
Confirmation Classes and Test: Confirmation classes are held on Sunday mornings in the Fall in Room 146 from 9:30-10:30. This class focuses on Lutheran doctrine. Students should bring a bible, notebook, and pencil to take notes. Students will be required to score 85% or higher on a written test held in December. A retest will be given for all students who do not achieve 85 percent on the test. In the Spring, 8th-graders move into the high school class on Sunday mornings.
“What Jesus Means to Me Speeches” and Rite of Confirmation: All students are required to make a public declaration of their faith and lifelong pledge to follow Jesus Christ during a worship service. We will hold the Rite of Confirmation after speeches at this worship service.
Small groups at Mentor Couple homes, Wednesdays 6:15-7:45. Students meet in small group (6-8 kids) in the homes of adult Mentor Couples to apply what they learned on Sunday mornings in real-life situations. Every year, confirmands look back on their experiences with Mentor Couples as a highlight of the Confirmation program.
Memory Work: By 8th grade, students are expected to have memorized and to be able to demonstrate the following:
Students who attended 5th-grade Communion Classes at Christ Lutheran received a copy of Luther’s Catechism. This is a key component of the confirmation program. If you did not receive a copy, please contact the church office. You can also find it online at The Book of Concord.
