Faith milestones are opportunities to honor and celebrate children and youth as they grow in faith by marking significant moments along their faith journey.
There are three faith milestones offered for youth at LOPC:
"Affirmations" for 6th Grade Youth
This milestone that recognizes and affirms each child’s unique and wonderful God-given design at an age when youth are asking, “Who am I?” and “Where do I belong?” The program guides parents and other significant adult voices in the child’s life to 1) recognize the student’s unique and wonderful design, 2) affirm the child for who God made them to be, and 3) remind the student of their important role as part of a family and faith community!
"Confirmation" for 8th-12th Grade Youth
Confirmation Registration is Open for all 8th-12th Grade Youth! Click HERE to register.
Confirmation is a milestone where LOPC staff and adult volunteers support students as they explore their faith, ask questions in a safe environment, and seek to take ownership over their faith journey. LOPC’s experiential Confirmation program is offered every Spring and youth from grades 8-12 may choose to participate any year they feel ready to consider this step of faith.
Confirmation is also a process that the confirmation student has primary agency over. We strongly believe that if the confirmation student feels at any time this process isn’t for them, they should be allowed to opt out of the program, even partway through.
