Midweek Confirmation Classes
The goal at Zion is to confirm students by the end of the 7th grade if they have completed the confirmation requirements. To help students be prepared for this we offer Midweek Confirmation classes on Wednesdays during the school year from 6:00-7:30pm for grades 4th through 7th (or until confirmed.)
For Midweek & Confirmation classes on Wednesday evenings face coverings are not required as there is room to be appropriately spaced but you are certainly welcome to wear one. The Confirmation classes will be meeting in the sanctuary beginning Wednesday, Nov 18 to help ensure adequate spacing.
About Midweek & Confirmation
The Midweek Classes offered for students in the 4th & 5th grade are not required to be confirmed, but are very beneficial in helping the students become familiar with the Lutheran Catechism that they will study in more depth during the two years of pastor-led Confirmation Classes.
Regular participation in Sunday school and learning the memory work is also beneficial preparation for Confirmation Classes. You can even practice the Learn by Heart memory work quizzes that are used in class.
Two years of pastor-led instruction is required to be confirmed at Zion. These classes are typically for 6th & 7th grade students. Further information will be given prior to the beginning of classes each fall. Please contact us if you would like to learn how to enroll your child in Confirmation Class.
Toward the end of the second year of instruction we ask that those wishing to be confirmed complete an Application for Confirmation and return it to the church office so that certificates can be prepared. Please print the form so that the confirmation student may sign their name and express their desire to be confirmed in the Lutheran faith and become a communicant member of Zion.
