Kids & Youth

PLC Christmas Program
The youth of PLC will be putting on our Christmas Program on Sunday, December 18 at 2 p.m. Our first practice was October 30, but if you have a child that would like to join us and did not make it to Sunday School on the 30th, it is not too late! The older children will have lines to practice, while the younger children will sing songs and be characters in the play. Our practices will take place after church services on December 4, 11, and 18 (if needed). The children with speaking parts will rehearse during Sunday School, while those that sing, will join us to practice the songs, then head back to do Christmas lessons. Some confirmation students have agreed to help make the props as well after church. If you have any questions or if you can help with the program or leading classrooms, please reach out to Michelle Schwab.

A Peace Lutheran Church Youth Education Facebook group has been created for parents and teachers to communicate better.  This will be a good tool to help keep everyone informed of days when there is no Sunday School or Confirmation and special days (such as singing in church, Christmas program, etc.). Join the group to stay in touch!

What is Confirmation?
Confirmation has been around in Lutheran Churches for a long time, but it is important for us to stop and think about what it is before we begin. The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) has said:

“Confirmation ministry is a pastoral and education ministry of the church which helps the baptized
person through Word and Sacrament to identify more deeply with the Christian community and participate
more fully in its mission.”

What does that mean? It means that Confirmation is more than a class, it is more than a three year
program – it is a ministry through which God is active in your life. Confirmation will help you to feel
more at home in the church and teach you ways to be active in the different ministries of the church.
Regardless of how old we are, what God wants for us has not began and will not end with
Confirmation. By the grace of God, we continue – each and every day of our lives – to walk our
journey of life with God.

Confirmation will teach you how your faith can be active in your daily life. It teaches you about the
promises that God has made to you and how you can depend on those promises during your lives.
We will learn about how trusting in God isn’t just something we hear about, but something we can
do ourselves. At the end of the Confirmation program you will have a deeper, more personal and
honest idea about what you believe and who God is. You will learn how to live out that faith in the church and world.

Here is how we are going to do that. We are going to study scripture, Baptism, Communion , and  the teachings of Martin Luther. We are going to learn through our actions as well as through worship and doing acts of service for others. You will have the chance to talk about what you are learning about your faith at home with your parents and at church with your pastors, teachers, and each other. It is our goal that at the end of all these classes you will stand before the church and make a statement of faith that is meaningful for you.

Confirmation is part of lifelong a journey of faith, filled with new questions and answers, new discoveries, new relationships, new responsibilities, and new possibilities. But know that confirmation is just one step along a much larger journey of your life. God is with you along the way, each step of the way. Confirmation is not the end, nor the beginning. Rather, Confirmation is a tool that helps you along your life-long adventure of living out your Christian faith.
