Alleluia's Confirmation ministry is an optional program for youth in grades 5 - 8, with young people Affirming their Baptism (confirmation) in the fall of 9th grade. Youth in grades 5-7 meet weekly on Wednesday nights from 6:00 - 7:20 at the Historic Church of St. Michael. Youth in 8th grade meet on Sunday nights as part of ATM (Alleluia Teen Ministry), Wednesdays during Lent with a mentor, and also other dates throughout the school year planning for a summer trip.
Learning. Service. Worship.
In addition to learning about the Bible and the Catechism (taught at annual retreats), participating in worship and in service projects is an important part of Alleluia's Confirmation ministry. Young people learn what it means to be a part of a faith community that loves and cares for one another and also the world around us.
Young people in grades 4 - 8 are invited to participate in a week of camp at Camp Wapo in Amery, WI. This fun-filled week of Bible Study, games, crafts, swimming and just hanging out helps these youth grow in their faith and deepen friendships.
An integral part of the 8th-grade Confirmation experience is preparing for a summer trip. Trips have included Mission Trips, BWCA trips, Camp and in the summer of 2018, the ELCA National Youth Gathering.
