The cornerstone program for Middle School Ministry is Confirmation, which meets at Atonement Lutheran on Wednesday nights. From 5:45pm-6:30pm there will be a dinner option and then from 6:30pm-7:30pm the Confirmation Group will meet for community building, learning, and discussion. Confirmation Classes are for all students in grades six through eight, and this year we’ll dig into Lutheran teachings and celebrating the 500th anniversary of the protestant reformation. These classes are always a blast and full of energy as students dive into their faith.
Our Confirmation students always point to their experiences at summer camp as some of the most meaningful times in their faith. Every year, the Mount Calvary Middle School students attend one full week of Confirmation camp at Rainbow Trail Lutheran Camp in Hillside, CO. The week is centered on students taking leadership positions as they explore new areas in their faith. Please visit rainbowtrail.org for more information.
Middle School Youth Gathering
Each year in January, the Rocky Mountain Synod of the ELCA hosts the Middle School Youth Gathering. Groups from all over the region come to worship, serve, and play together. This weekend is always a great experience and connects our students to a larger church that strives to make the world a better place in which to live. The 2018 youth gathering takes place Jan 13-15 in Colorado Springs.
