Children and Youth

Faith Formation

Our Children’s Ministry and Faith Formation program begins at age 3. There are small group and family discussions, activities, and music that grab the kid’s attention and point them to Jesus. In this COVID 19 Pandemic Season-we will offer virtual experiences (and in-person as able) to help cultivate growth, community, and support for God’s youngest disciples.

Confirmation

Our Confirmation Ministry is for our 7th, 8th, and 9th-grade youth and their families. This 3-year program explores what it means to follow Jesus and practice our faith. This is accomplished by exploring the Biblical narrative, trying a variety of faith practices, wrestling with topics that matter to youth, and engaging in the life and community of Zumbro. The journey culminates with a rite of Confirmation (and Affirmation of Baptism) typically in their 9th-grade year.

In this COVID 19 Pandemic Season -confirmation will offer a hybrid approach -online learning, family conversation, small group and community interaction, and service and worship opportunities that will give them space to wrestle and grow in faith and life, connect with peers, and practice their faith in relevant ways.
