Newport Lutheran Church holds Confirmation classes on Sundays from 4:00 – 5:30 for all 7th and 8th grade students.

Confirmation will begin on September 24th at 4:00 p.m. We are using a new curriculum this year! It is exciting! Built into the curriculum are service projects, ways to check in between class sessions, and opportunities for families to be involved. It also involves technology!! “Faith formation of youth” – as a program-is killing the church. This curriculum’s aim is to focus on letting God’s story (and ours) shape our faith lives. As Rev. Matt Muters, and ELCA Pastor wrote, “For me if we start with a program for confirmation we are doing our kids a disservice because we are trying to make them fit into a preconceived notion of faith and where we expect them to be. I have found that bringing them to the Bible and the Bible to them we can “dance” with them through the Word.”

Each student is required to complete worship and service credits as well.  The goal is to help them link their faith to their life in the world.

The Confirmation service is held the first Sunday in May for those students who have met the requirements to be confirmed.
