The key components our program include:
Class/Bible study - There are 32 classes held per year. Each student is allowed 6 unexcused absences.
Service - Confirmation families are asked to participate in at least one church service activity and one community service activity during the year. The students are asked to write a reflection on the service they did. Monthly service options are available at HTLC.
Worship - Each student is asked to fill out 5 worship outlines with the help of a parent or significant adult.
Students and families are also invited to help at worship services by signing up to be greeters, ushers, readers, or communion help. Confirmation families are asked to serve at least twice during the year.
Fellowship - Each confirmation family is asked to attend at least one Family Ministry fellowship event, which are available monthly at HTLC.
Camp - Students are expected to attend a week of Bible camp at EWALU or a summer trip once within the 3 years they are in confirmation. Details about this year's opportunities are coming soon!

Confirmation at Holy Trinity is a 3 year program for middle school aged kids. During the three years students will learn about the Old Testament, the New Testament, and what it means to be a Lutheran. This year, 2017-2018, we are focusing on what it means to be a Lutheran.
ALL are welcome in our confirmation program, no need to be a member of Holy Trinity!
