CONFIRMATION

 

SEPTEMBER 

This month we will meet twice:
Sunday, September 8th from 5 pm to 6:15 pm. (We will eat dinner from 6 to 6:15 pm). We will begin studying the Old Testament this fall. 

Sunday, September 22nd from 1:30 to 4:30. We will participate in the 9th Annual Green Gulch Youth Gleaning—at the Green Gulch Farm & Zen Center, 1601 Shoreline Hwy, Muir Beach. We will meet at the church at 1 pm and carpool to the event. From 1:30 to 2:00 there will be an introduction to meditation, and from 2:00 to 4:30 we will do gleaning and work projects. (To “glean” means to “gather slowly and laboriously, bit by bit. To gather after the reapers or regular gatherers.”) We are advised to wear long pants, socks, close toed shoes and work gloves.

 

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.
