First Communion & Confirmation Classes

First Communion 

At St. Paul's Lutheran Church, youth who are sixth graders and up are invited to participate in Holy Communion preparation during the season of Lent.  This takes place in a weekend retreat setting.  This is followed by some fun family activities and a home visit by our pastor or youth pastor. 

First Communion is celebrated on Palm Sunday.


Jr. Confirmation instruction is for youth in 7th and 8th grade.  The weekly classes are offered to our youth on Sundays, or to our St. Paul’s School youth during the week for religion class.   

The purpose is to help the youth take personal ownership of their faith!  To do this they study topics such as:

  1. Who is God, and the three persons of the Trinity
  2. What does God expect of me according to the 10 Commandments
  3. What makes God’s gifts of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper so special
  4. What is the Power of Prayer
  5. How has God gifted me in a unique way for serving in His Church and living in His World
  6. What does it truly mean to be forgiven, and to forgive others

The actual Confirmation of Youth takes place in the month of April or May following two years of instruction.
