Confirmation (6th – 9th Grade)
Salem’s confirmation ministry is an experience designed to nurture youth in the Christian faith. A creative program which seeks to meet youth where they are in life and helps them discover the joy of faith.Confirmation is built upon four basic Lutheran foundations — Bible study, worship, community, and service.
