Bethlehem offers confirmation classes to youth in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. Students in confirmation regularly assist in worship and participate in a variety of service opportunities.
During the Lenten season, each confirmand partners with a mentor and meets for prayer, discussion, and fellowship. Each year during the weeks after Easter, confirmation students participate in special off-site learning trips, including A Journey through Life, a Twin Cities Tour of Religions, and a Creation Care Tour.
Once they have completed the confirmation process, the students are confirmed through an Affirmation of Baptism service on the first Sunday of May in their 8th grade year.
When parents feel their children are ready to receive Holy Communion, the children are invited to a three-week series of communion instruction. Classes are available twice a year depending on interest.
Confirmation 2.0 is offered to senior high youth once a month for fun and Christian fellowship.
