Confirmation is an important event in the life of many Lutheran churches, and it is at St. Mark. Confirmation is an amazing time for our students to say yes to God’s yes, and affirm their baptism.
For youth to be confirmed, they are encouraged to participate in CREW (Creating Relationships Every Wednesday) which is the junior high and Confirmation ministry at St. Mark. Grades 6, 7 and 8 meet on Wednesday evenings 6:00 – 7:30pm during the school year in the Discipleship Center, lower level. Evenings consist of large group, learning, outreach, and small group fellowship. It’s a terrific opportunity to learn more about your faith with your friends.
At the end of their 8th grade year CREW students are invited to participate in an Affirmation of Baptism where they are given the opportunity to take on the baptismal promises their parents and sponsors made for them at their baptism. The service of Affirmation of Baptism will be on a weekend in May.
