Confirmation Age Ministry

Welcome to Confirmation Age Ministry!

We serve youth from 6th through 9th grade through youth events and Confirmation classes throughout the school year and summer.

The Confirmation program at St. Andrew Lutheran Church begins as students enter 6th grade and concludes with the Affirmation of Baptism in the fall of 9th grade. Our program is designed with the hope that your child will learn more about Christ, deepen their faith, strengthen friendships, and find their place in the church.

We welcome both members and non-members to attend our Confirmation Age Ministry youth events. A few favorites include the Middle School Winter Party, a summer mission trip, the annual ice cream bike tour, and river tubing! Keep your eye out for new registrations. Join us and become part of the St. Andrew community!


6-8th Grade Confirmation at St. Andrew

**For 9th Grade Confirmation information, please scroll down.

Welcome to St. Andrew’s Confirmation program this fall of 2021! We are excited to welcome our 6-8th graders to a season of learning, small group discussion and relationship building, and experiences that will help develop their faith. 

Our 6-8th graders can sign-up to attend a specific session: 

  • 6-8th Grade Confirmation: Wednesdays, 8-9 AM
  • 6-8th Grade Confirmation: Wednesdays, 4:45-5:45 PM
  • 6-8th Grade Confirmation: Wednesdays, 7-8 PM

Please register your child as soon as possible by clicking here. Prompt registrations will help us place students into small groups.

You will have the option of bus transportation from St. Andrew to Central Middle School (CMS) for the start of the school day. Afternoon participants will have transportation provided after school from CMS to St. Andrew. Parents/guardians are responsible for all other transportation.

It is our hope that as many students as possible participate in in-person Confirmation. Following the direction of the local Eden Prairie School District from which many of our students come, 6th graders and their small group leaders are required to mask. Older youth are strongly encouraged to mask. St. Andrew will continue to follow the guidelines of the school district. Virtual options are being explored.

Remember two keys dates for 6-8th grade Confirmation:

  • 6-8th Grade Confirmation Orientation: Wednesday, September 22, at 6:30 PM in the sanctuary for student and one parent/guardians
  • First day of 6-8th grade Confirmation: Wednesday, September 29

If you are interested in being a Small Group Guide for a group of youth, please let Pastor Peter Johnson (pastorpeter@standrewlu.org) know.

Finally, we welcome Meghan Kelly as Confirmation Ministry Assistant. Thank you, Meghan, for all your assistance with our ministry this fall!
