The Confirmation program at Gloria Dei is a two-year curriculum geared towards 7th and 8th grade students. Students meet at 9:00-10:15 a.m on Sunday mornings during the school year to learn about scripture, prayer, fellowship and service. They learn as young people coming of age in the Christian Faith. They also gather for movie and game nights, retreats, service activities and worship. Classes are taught by Pastor John Berg and the Confirmation Team. We follow the Collaborate Lutheran Confirmation Curriculum published by Sparkhouse. There is no charge for tuition. All denominations are welcome!
