Middle School (6th-8th Grade)

Confirmation Program

Salem's confirmation is a two-year program for 7th-8th grade students covering the Old Testament and New Testament, as well as Luther's Small Catechism. Learning sessions include both a large and small group environment, giving students an opportunity to build connections with peers, adults, and God. Confirmation students meet on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:00 p.m September-April. Social events, community service, a fall retreat, and summer confirmation camp are also part of the program! Three times a year confirmands and their parents gather with other local confirmation programs through Collective (Youth Groups Collaborating) to focus on relevant issues facing our young people.

Middle School Sunday Morning

Middle school youth gather each Sunday (September-May) for breakfast, highs & lows, and faith conversation! Breakfast begins at 9:15 a.m. in the youth room (church basement). At 9:30 a.m. they head into the middle school room for some highs & lows, followed by open discussion on relevant faith issues. Each year we are ask families to sign up to supply breakfast each week. Grab a friend and join the fun!

Collective began in 2010 as KCLYC, when three local Lutheran churches partnered on a senior high mission trip to Florida. The Holy Spirit was truly present as youth from each of the churches were bonding and building connections with each other and those they were called to serve. Shortly after our mission trip experience the youth requested we continue gathering as a group throughout the year. We started gathering monthly for fellowship, education, and service. We have continued to include area congregations in this grass roots collaboration. In January 2020 they were renamed Collective (Youth Groups Collaborating) .
