Confirmation is all about learning who God is and why faith makes a difference in your life. Classes meet Wednesdays during the school year. During the three-year confirmation process, students, adult mentors and teachers will explore the Bible, learn how to pray, serve, study the catechism, and have tons of fun.

Summer 2017 Mission Trip

Lake Traverse, South Dakota

July 9-14, 2017

Information Sheet

Zumbro has a long history of participating in meaningful youth mission trips with YouthWorks, based in Minneapolis, MN. Next summer, Zumbro’s middle schoolers will head to Lake Traverse, SD. The prairies, hills, and valleys of the Lake Traverse Reservation in northeastern South Dakota offer opportunities to camp, hunt and fish. Aside from being an area of great natural beauty, this is home to the people of the Sisseton-Wahpeton Sioux Oyate (the word ‘oyate’ is Dakota for ‘family’). Sisseton is right beside the north/south continental divide and is also completely surrounded by glacial melt lakes, making it look distinct from the rest of South Dakota. During the mission trip week, the group will serve through painting, cleaning, yard work or other simple work projects. They will also plan and lead kids' programming for children in the community, including Bible lessons, games, crafts, and reading. Contact Family Minister Kris Oppegard with your questions.

Our journey of faith leads us to build bridges of understanding and peace, to reach out with compassion, and to share the hope of Jesus.
