Welcome to our ministry for 7th and 8th graders at Holy Spirit Lutheran Church! Our goal is to provide you with a safe place where you can be yourself and be accepted, and a place to be encouraged and supported as you continue your “journey” between childhood and young adult. Friends are always welcome to join us for any of the activities!
Our Confirmation Program is for grades 7, 8, and 9 and is held on Wednesday evenings 7:00 to 8:30 pm. We focus on building good relationships through large and small group activities and growing our faith in retreats and rewarding service projects. Our year runs from September through the first of April and registration is always open. To register, fill out your registration form when it arrives in the mail or online in late August.
Brunch Bunch is a time on Sunday mornings when junior high and high school youth come together for food, faith, fellowship, and fun. We meet a couple Sunday mornings a month at 11 am in the Youth Room. There are also opportunities to participate in "Faith Visits" at other congregations to learn how other communities experience God. Friends are always welcome!
