Confirmation is an opportunity to not only lift the gift of Baptism but the faithful continuation of the journey of widening and deepening a relationship with God. It is a mutual commitment with the Christian Community. It is a sacred rite of passage, a cherished tradition, and a transfer of responsibility. Join Confirmation Class to continue to explore your faith, ask questions, and deepen your relationship with God.

Confirmation will look a bit different at St. Mary’s this year than in the past. We are offering a mixed-age confirmation process for youth. Any youth in grades 8-12 who are interested in being confirmed can participate. Instead of taking place weekly on Sunday morning as in years past, we will offer 6 workshops throughout the Spring. To learn more about the 2020-2021 confirmation workshops please contact Emily Bruch via email for more information.

Youth Ministry Amazon Wishlist

St. Mary’s Youth Ministry has been gathering outside this Fall. We have been blessed with such a beautiful campus and weather to be able to come together in fellowship during this crazy year. The weather is about to get cooler, but it is our hopes to be able to keep safely meeting in-person as long as possible! We would greatly appreciate it if you would take a moment to check-out our Amazon Wishlist of items to help us continue meeting outdoors.


Youth Group – an All-Welcoming Community

St. Mary’s youth group is an all-welcoming community to youth grades 6-12. It is our mission to provide a safe and encouraging environment for our youth to experience God’s abundant love through relationships, fun, and questioning. We want our youth to recognize that their lives are holy before God, that they are worthy of God’s love, and that they are enough as they are because they are God’s own. This is the foundation for them to believe that they have a place and a call to answer in the Kingdom. Throughout the year we meet for a variety of activities, outings, and service projects. Youth group meeting times may vary week to week based on the event.
