In our Confirmation Ministry this winter and spring we finish our review of some of the themes, major sections and specific books of the Old Testament or First Testament. Thank you for keeping our eight students: Robert, Abby C., Sammi, Elise, Abby I., Lucie, Elle, and Anita in your prayers.

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.
