Youth

Children are wonderful gifts from God placed in the care of families and the church. At Good Shepherd Lutheran Church we take this responsibility very seriously. The members and staff of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church are committed to providing quality programming for children and youth and all programming follows Good Shepherd’s Children & Youth Protection Policy.

Confirmation (Grades 6-8)

For 6th – 8th Grade youth, Confirmation has been around in Lutheran Churches for a long time, but it is important for us to stop and think about what it is before we begin.

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) has said:

“Confirmation ministry is a pastoral and education ministry of the church which helps the baptized person through Word and Sacrament to identify more deeply with the Christian community and participate more fully in its mission.”

Saints & Sinners (Grades 9-12)
