CrossWalk Middle School Ministry

Grades 6-8

The mission of CrossWalk Middle School Ministry is to empower, encourage, and prepare you and your child for a deep life of faith and active engagement in Zion Lutheran Church.

CrossWalk Confirmation

Wednesdays 6:15-8:15 pm

Confirmation is an important milestone in your son or daughter’s faith journey that began at their baptism. It is our joy to partner with you in helping you fulfill the promises you made at baptism and help your child grow in their relationship with Jesus. The three years spent in confirmation classes are intended to continue the exploration of faith and the church so that students can make their affirmation of baptism in a statement of faith in the hope and trust that God will continue to lead and guide them in all the aspects of their lives now and in the future.

CrossWalk Confirmation is grounded in the basics: weekly worship, worship involvement, weekly learning on Wednesday evenings, faith growth, and community and service.  In addition, students are expected to attend a retreat in their 6th and 7th grade years and spend a week at Camp Wapo in June after their 8th grade year, and finally, participate in the Rite of Confirmation on Rally Sunday in September of their 9th grade year.
