COVID-19 Update

We look forward gathering together again!

Updates, including registration information, will be sent via email and posted on this webpage.

Current Students: Please continue to work any lessons you have missed. It’s also a great time to lift up others through (safe and socially distant) acts of service!

St. James Confirmation

The confirmation program at St. James is an exciting, multi-faceted program that helps students gain an understanding of the Lutheran Faith and prepares them to become full-fledged members of the congregation.

The 7th and 8th grade students participate in a dynamic program that incorporates the St. James mission: Receive, Grow, Give. In addition to weekly Sunday morning classes, the students are required to attend 20 worship services a year. Additionally, each student is required to assist during worship services: once in the fall and once in the spring. Students can choose between Reading and Ushering.

In addition to classes and worship attendance/participation, we focus on giving back to the community. Students are required to complete 5 hours of community service. These service hours can come from a variety of different sources. Some examples include, helping at the Food Pantry, with Angel’s Wish, or helping with the Community Meal hosted by St. James on the first Wednesday of each month. There are many opportunities throughout the year for the students to get the needed 5 hours.

Once the two-year program is completed, students participate in an Affirmation of Baptism service, also known as Confirmation service. This service is usually in late October.
