Confirmation Journey

Confirmation is a personal faith process for students who are currently in 7th-12th grades, who would like to dive deeper into understanding what they believe and why. Confirmation at Woodbury Lutheran has been designed to be a personal experience that is driven by a student's desire to grow in their understanding of their baptismal faith. At the end of this journey, students publicly confirm and claim their identity as a disciple of Jesus.

Parents

We want to partner with you!  Here are a few great ways to stay connected.

Email Us: (Lindsey - Middle School (All campuses)/ Patrick - High School (All Campuses)/Sarah (Oak Hill Campus)/Laura (Liberty Ridge Campus)) any important info about your young person that will help us care for him/her! (Things we like to know include: any special needs, life changes/concerns, exciting stuff, and the hard stuff.)

Small Group Leaders: Get to know your young person's small group leader, invite them to games, plays, competitions, etc. Invite them out for coffee or dinner. They are a cheerleader for you as well as your young person!
