Every year our district of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod organizes an amazing retreat for Jr. High/Middle School youth. There are great speakers, fun breakout sessions, games and awesome worship experiences. Plus youth get to meet other youth from all over the district! The theme for this year’s gathering is “Chaos”. At Jr. High DYG, our youth will explore how they can relate to the chaotic story of the prodigal son. Over the course of the weekend we will talk in depth about the chaos we often feel in our own lives, and the feelings of dissatisfaction, being lost, jealousy, and how God’s forgiveness covers the chaos of all the emotions in our lives.

What is Confirmation?
The Lutheran Church is highly committed to Biblical education for children, youth and adults. The foundation of that educational process is often called among us "Confirmation." We call it "Confirmation" because our goal is to "confirm" . . .
1. The certainty of our hope for eternal life with God.
2. Our teachings, beliefs and values with the Bible.
3. Our actions to be increasingly consistent with our intellectual understanding of Biblical truth.
4. Our God-given faith now expressed by our personal testimony.
5. Our participation in the local church and the entire Christian community.
6. Our mission by engaging intentionally in service (ministry) which tells others of our hope in Jesus Christ.
7. Our life-long commitment to follow Jesus Christ (discipleship) together with His body, the Church.
Again, youth in 6 grade or higher are welcome to attend Confirmation.
It is a two year, weekly class.
Classes begin Mid-September each year.
