6-8 Grade Spring Camping Retreat
Calling all 2nd year confirmation students and 7-8 grade youth! Mark your calendars for May 4-6, 2018. This brand new retreat is intended to both cap off the confirmation program in style and connect the 6th graders with some new friends as they get ready to transition into their next stage of faith development: 7-8 grade youth group. We’ll be retreating to the woods of Falls Lake, pitching some tents, and creating lasting friendships and memories. You won’t want to miss it! Attendance is expected for 2nd year confirmation students and recommended for 7-8 grade youth. Register here

The Confirmation Program at Hope
Confirmation is a time in a young person's faith life when they confirm the promise made at their baptism. Hope's program is two years during 5 & 6 grades. However, each year we have 7-9 graders who connect to Hope and go through the program as well. Students focus on a Lutheran understanding of the Bible and use the Catechism as a guide. Questions? Contact the church office at 919-554-8109.
