Confirmation Ministry (6th-8th grade students)

The mission statement of our church helps us stay focused upon what’s important in our ministry. It reads: As Friends of God through Jesus, empowered by the Spirit, we are Connecting People to Christ by sharing His love in word and action everywhere we are.  Our Confirmation program is carefully considered in the light of this mission.

Churches around the country are placing a renewed emphasis on the importance of the family in Christian growth. It has become clear that families that grow in the Christian faith together are significantly more likely to see their children continue in the faith and on to adulthood. With this in mind, there are three main focuses for Confirmation:

Family Worship          Family Time Education          Small Group Education

If you have any questions about Confirmation Ministry or if you would like to register your son/daughter please email Nicole Dollevoet at nicoled@stpaulfalls.com or call 920-467-6449.
