Confirmation

6th-8th Grade

Confirmation is a middle school (grades 6-8) ministry where students grow in their faith, learn the Christian faith in the Lutheran tradition, and develop community in small groups to prepare them for their own Affirmation of Baptism. The Affirmation of Baptism is the opportunity for students to affirm for themselves the promises that their parents, sponsors, and congregation made for them at their baptism. Each year, 9th grade students are given the opportunity to affirm their faith on Reformation Sunday! 


Confirmation meets in The Underground Youth Center at Alleluia! Lutheran Church on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:00pm during the school year. During large group time, students will dive into the Old Testament & New Testament, discuss our Lutheran tradition, and explore what that means for living like Christ with Youth Ministries Director Kurtis Arndt. Students gather in small groups each Wednesday to connect with peers and small group leaders. Students are also encouraged and invited to participate in fellowship and service opportunities throughout the year! 


We meet on Wednesday evenings.  Please join us!

2024-25 Registration coming soon!

ELCA Youth Gathering - July 2024

NOLA Bound!

We are signed up and ready to head to New Orleans for our first ever ELCA Youth Gathering the week of July 14, 2024!  This will be an action-packed week of service, learning, cultural immersion, and worship!


The theme of the 2024 ELCA Youth Gathering is 'Created to Be' which comes from Psalm 139. During this week students will learn and live out how we are 'Created to Be' free, authentic, brave, disruptive, and disciples.


Alleluia! Lutheran Church is sending 10 participants to New Orleans to join over 15,000 high schoolers, church workers, and volunteers. Our fundraising journey is on! Check out the 'Alleluia! Airplane' displays to see just how far our fundraising journey has gone and be on the lookout for ways you can financially support those going on this life changing week of faith formation! 


Please reach out to Youth Director Kurtis Arndt with any questions regarding the ELCA Youth Gathering or how you can support those going on the trip!"


Thank you for your continued support and prayers as we prepare for the Crescent City!
