We are excited for you to see all of the fun plans we have at OSLC. Please take time to page through the Road Map and let our Staff know if you have any questions. The last few pages are the registration forms for Sunday and Wednesday School and Confirmation for fall 2016.

*Students are required to come every Wednesday night from 6:15-7:30 (If you miss please see the Confirmation Make-up work page)

Confirmation Small Group Format:
Confirmation students in grades (6th-8th) will be divided into small groups according to their grade level. Each group will have a mixture of boys and girls all and will have two leaders. The purpose of the small group will be to discuss and process material covered throughout the Wednesday worship service. Groups will take time covering the scripture covered throughout the Narrative Lectionary along with the sermon.
Parent/Family Night: On the first Wednesday of the month parents or an adult is required to accompany your student in Confirmation. Here parents have an opportunity to learn what their students are doing in Confirmation. This also gives them an opportunity to participate and discuss with them on a variety of topics throughout the year!
Confirmation runs from 6:15-7:30 PM (New Time Change) on Wednesday nights!
DURING LENT: Students will be asked to attend the Lenten services on Wednesday night beginning with Ash Wednesday. We will stay in the sanctuary following the worship service for a question and answer session with the speaker!

A Quick View Of Confirmation At Our Savior’s
The Confirmation program at Our Savior’s is a three-year program for students in grades 6 – 8. We try to allow for both large-group activities as well as individual or small group work and discussion.
Materials that we study varies each year. This year students are working with materials following the Narrative Lectionary. Students attend our new “Wednesday Worship” to begin confirmation and end discussing material in their small groups. Here students work through a variety of Scriptures and lessons from the Old Testament, New Testament and Catechism.
Some nights will be scheduled service events or fellowship nights, which are great opportunities to connect with each other, and to make a difference in our community.
Students are confirmed in September of their 9th grade. The Confirmation service is usually scheduled in late September.
