Welcome to the St. James Confirmation page! In the fall of 2017 we began our new program that allows for more flexibility in how our middle school youth complete the necessary steps to become confirmed members of our church community. Please find more information about the program and requirements here. Most youth are confirmed on Reformation Sunday (end of October) in their 9th grade year. It is our hope that as youth are confirmed they will become young leaders and participants in the life of St. James.
To make reporting on your service and activities easier, we have linked those forms for you below. You may fill the documents out online and then print them to hand in to Pastor Andrew.
7th grade confirmands have a retreat each fall at Camp Nawakwa to welcome them into the program. At this retreat, the 7th grade class plans and leads a worship service for the rest of the middle school students that join us mid-way through the weekend. In the spring, 8th and 9th graders are invited to attend a D.C. retreat at Luther Place Church that focuses on homelessness and poverty.
Each year, 7th, 8th, and 9th graders have the opportunity to attend Confirmation Camp at Camp Nawakwa. We will be joining together with other congregations throughout our synod for a week of learning and fun camp experiences.
