Confirmation Program at St. Peder’s
Youth in 7th grade are invited to start their confirmation journey. Confirmation classes are for two years on Wednesday evenings during the school year, and the youth are confirmed the fall of their 9th grade year.
Our program includes instruction in the Old & New Testament, Small Catechism, Martin Luther & the Lutheran Church, and basics in the Lutheran tradition. In 9th grade confirmands choose a mentor to work closely with during their 9th grade year. There is also a Confirmation Retreat each winter held at Bay Lake Camp.
All youth are invited to participate in the Confirmation Program. Please contact Pastor Julie Ebbesen for more information.
Sunday Morning Faith Formation for Youth
Middle School and High School youth meet upstairs in the Youth Room. Each week we gather to deepen our faith, and explore where God is calling each us to go in our lives. What relevance do the Bible and church have to our daily lives? What does it mean to follow Jesus in the world? How can we be doing justice work right where we are? We explore these questions and more each Sunday morning (from September to May). For more information email Shannon Kearns.
Summer Mission Trips & Camps!
During the summer our High School travel somewhere in the US, to spend a week or longer doing service projects for others. We have been to Lander, WY; Martin, SD; Green Bay, WI; New Orleans, LA; Brooklyn, NY; and San Juan, Puerto Rico. This year our youth will be heading to the ELCA National Youth Gathering in Texas. See a snapshot of our past trips below.
