Upcoming Confirmation News


Hello Confirmation Families, 
We are excited to see everyone again this Wednesday, April 12th at 6:15 sharp!  There is no large group this week, we are all meeting in Luther Hall for a Kairos Blanket Exercise.  Because of this, it is very important everyone is on time if not early! Our community is a rich tapestry of individual experiences woven with generations of historical threads and vibrant cultural colors. This Wednesday, our confirmation groups use an embodied reflection of history to connect with their personal stories and the stories of their community. The KAIROS Blanket Exercise will be a moving and reflective experience illustrating how history impacts individuals of generations to come and how we can best honor our stories and compassionately connect with the stories of others. Led by Intern Pastor Mark Abelsen, creative artist and nonprofit leader Sandy Agustin, and Director of Outreach, Heidi Busch, we will gather in Luther Hall for a large group experience kids are sure to remember. Be sure to ask them about it!

We are also starting our Lutheran Social Services Donation Drive.
  Mount Calvary along with LSS believes all young people should live in safe and healthy environments. More than 6,000 youth throughout Minnesota experience homelessness on any given night, according to a recent Wilder Foundation report. Each year, LSS of MN makes thousands of contacts and provides youth with the resources they need to launch into productive, healthy, and independent lives. They are committed to supporting youth to gain stability through early intervention and prevention services, supportive shelters and housing options, and services to restore and strengthen families.
