Confirmation at Zion is a three-year process. Students typically begin in sixth grade, although older students are welcome to begin anytime. Classes are held during the Christian Education Hour on Sunday mornings throughout the school year.
Over the course of three years students will take a variety of classes designed to help them grow in faith and knowledge of Jesus Christ and what it means to follow Him throughout their life. Classes include Holy Communion, Lord’s Prayer, Apostles’ Creed, Baptism & Confession, The Ten Commandments, World Religions, Sharing Your Faith, Reformation History, and many more.
Each year students complete a service project they select and participate in worship as an acolyte. At the end of their third year, students will write and share a personal Statement of Faith with our church family prior to their Confirmation Day.
