You belong here

Building a faith community shouldn’t end once you are confirmed. This is a life long journey of questioning, doubting, believing and serving. We believe it is important to provide today’s youth with a safe space to de-stress, wrestle with their faith and build an affirming community with others.

ELC Youth Calendar

Confirmation at Emmanuel

6th to 9th graders and their parents or guardians are invited to participate in weekly Confirmation classes at 10:15 AM on Sunday mornings. Then, meet up with the high schoolers for the last hour of youth group on the first and third Sundays of the month.

What is Confirmation?

Confirmation is an opportunity for people to affirm for themselves the promises that their parents, sponsors and congregation made for them at their baptism.

If you have not been confirmed or baptized and are older than 9th grade, please contact us and we can figure out together what this journey looks like for you! All of God’s children are welcome to participate in the sacrament of Baptism.

High School

Youth Group

All high school students are invited to in-person youth group on the first and third Sundays of each month from 10:15 AM - 12:30 PM for games, laughs, faith discussions and community.
