Confirmation/Middle School Ministry
Our confirmation program is for youth 6th through 9th grades. We meet weekly on Wednesdays at 5:00 p.m. for a light supper and then get into our classes for the 6-8 grades. Sixth through eighth graders study the Bible in the weekly classes and focus on the Small Catechism of Martin Luther on two retreats each year. Confirmation Camp at Vermilion is strongly recommended. Ninth graders do not have weekly classes but spend time in the fall of their ninth grade year preparing a faith statement in preparation for Confirmation Day on Reformation Sunday.
Pizza lunch is served on the first Wednesday at 11:45 a.m. through the school year. Pizza is provided by Sven and Ole’s. We invite all juniors and seniors from Cook County High who have open campus privilege to join us for a time to connect, share schedules, and a brief devotion.
Senior High Bible Study with Pastor Mark
Wednesdays at 5:30 we offer Bible study for senior high. We meet right after the 5:00 pm. supper.
Peer Ministry Camp info soon.
All youth sixth through twelfth grades gather each Sunday at 5:00 p.m. for Bible study, pizza and worship preparation as they put together a monthly Sunday evening worship service. This worship service is for anyone, but is definitely for, with, and by the youth. Filled with multi-media and contemporary song this service is for all youth in Cook County.
Laurie Spry (370-0183) and other volunteers offer a faith-filled and fun Wednesday afternoon for 3rd through 5th grades. Every Wednesday they gather for Bible study, song, craft, and snacks.
First Communion Classes are offered during the Wednesday after school program in Lent.
