Learning about our faith and forming lifelong friendships.

Make Your Faith Your Own

Confirmation occurs during the 7th and 8th grade years in school. The Confirmation program helps 7th and 8th graders learn more about the bible and their faith while forming important relationships with their peers, pastors, and youth staff and mentors. Along the way, students not only learn about their faith, but make it their own. Confirmation includes weekly meetings, guided by pastors, youth staff, and confirmation mentors, as well as several retreat and camping experiences. Students celebrate their affirmation of baptism in September of their 9th grade school year.

Confirmation Schedule

Confirmation at Mount Olivet is a two plus year program beginning the fall of 7th grade and ending with the confirmation service in September of the student’s 9th grade year. The Confirmation program helps 7th and 8th grade students learn more about the Bible, Lutheranism, Faith in their everyday life and God. During these very important years, students are instructed weekly by a Confirmation small group leader, our Pastors and Youth Staff. Students will form connections with their peers, youth staff, pastors and their church family. Our fall schedule is as follows:

We are offering Confirmation classes at the Minneapolis campus on Sundays from 8:45-9:45am and Wednesdays from 7-8:15pm. Sunday Confirmation meets in the Youth Center. Wednesday Confirmation meets in room 207ABC.
