Lenten Mentor Program Information

Thank you for being a part of the Lenten Mentor program! We are so glad to be on this journey together. Here are some helpful links!

Confirmation

During the three years of Confirmation, middle school youth begin their own faith journey - learning what it means to be a Christian, what makes us Lutheran, and what it means to live out their faith in their daily lives.

During the fall of 9th grade, students who intend to affirm their faith will have four weeks of small group meetings and a weekend retreat to walk through "what's next" in their faith journey. Confirmation services are held during worship services on Reformation Weekend each fall.

High School Fellowship Time 

Join us Wednesday 7:45-8:30 in Pier 7 after Confirmation for High School Fellowship Time. It's a chance to catch up, hang out, have a snack, and have some great fellowship!

Peer Ministry Training

What is Peer Ministry? It's a leadership training program that teaches interpersonal skills in order to be a better listener, a more adept conversationalist, and better at observing your surroundings.

Why is it beneficial? If you become certified in Peer Ministry, you are able to lead a Confirmation small group, be a leader at Camp Wapo, you get a discount on registering for events, you get access to our Mahtomedi HS Parking lot, and best of all: you become a better version of yourself!

To get officially certified, there are two routes: Either come to all 5 sessions OR Come to the weekend retreat at Wapo in April.

Service Trips & Other Events 

Every Summer we offer different trips for our Middle Schoolers and High Schoolers. It may be a service trip to somewhere like Nashville, or a backpacking adventure in the mountains of Colorado. More information for what trips will be offered this Summer will be coming in early 2024.

Senior Blessing

High school graduation is a time of excitement and celebration!

Each of our seniors is invited to attend a special celebration of their achievement in graduation from High School. Graduates are invited to wear their cap and gown for worship the morning of the blessing. They will be invited to read the prayers, the lessons, and lead special music if there is interest. During the worship, they will all be blessed by the congregation as they move into this new phase in their lives. Following worship, all graduates and families are invited into the Fellowship Hall for a brief reception and to receive their milestone gifts as you all celebrate!
