The confirmation program at Kent Lutheran Church is titled “Faith Thinking.” For those who aren’t familiar with confirmation – it is a tradition of the Lutheran Church (and a few other denominations). Youth at about middle school are nurtured in faith leading to a rite of public affirmation of their baptism. Our purpose at KLC is not for youth “to finish a program” but rather to consider and deliberate their faith at an age where self-identity issues are crucial.
Together with four other Lutheran churches in the area we offer a Faith Thinking program for youth and their parents. After completion of this experience we continue to offer “faith thinking” opportunities. We call our youth ministry, PAC, Pretty Awesome Cluster. Besides monthly gatherings we offer two summer road trips.
