On Sunday, January 12th at 5pm we will start the new year with a family potluck. During this dinner we will plan for the upcoming months and choose a date for our Spring Confirmation Service.
IT’S NEVER TO EARLY TO START PLANNING for the 2021 YOUTH GATHERING – June 29- July 3, 2021 in Minneapolis, MN!
Every three years, 30,000 high school youth and their adult leaders from across the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America gather for a week of faith formation known as the ELCA Youth Gathering. Through days spent in interactive learning, worship, Bible study, service and fellowship, young people grow in faith and are challenged and inspired to live their faith in their daily lives. All high school students are welcome. Stay tuned for more info or contact Pastor Tom or the church office.
CONFIRMATION PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
Our Confirmation program at Marin Lutheran is a three year program designed for youth in the 6th – 8th grades to provide a place for students to:
- Experience the love and grace of God and develop their own, personal relationship with God.
- Learn and experience some of the practices of our faith—prayer, meditation.
- Learn about the Christian, Lutheran faith and to experience religion and faith that is vital in today’s world.
- Confirmation, not conformation—we strive to give your children the tools they need to confirm their faith, not so much conform to a narrow set of beliefs.
During twice-monthly classes students study: The Old & New Testaments, Martin Luther’s Small Catechism, Lutheran History & Lutheran Living. They attend other houses of worship, serve the hungry, go on retreat and discover that our holy God is unconditionally in love with each one of us.
