Connecting Students to Jesus

In Student Ministry we seek to connect 5th - 12th grade students to the extraordinary life found in Jesus. Student Ministry at Faith offers: the Landing, Confirmation, First Communion Instruction, and student mission trips. All programs aim to show students what it means to be a disciple of Jesus who makes disciples wherever they live, work, and play.


Faith seeks to strengthen student's gospel-centered foundation through learning and studying the Word of God. We further hope to help students grow in a deeper relationship with each other, ministry leaders and volunteers, and God. Each student gathering slightly differs at each campus, but they all have the same mission. 

At Faith - Oakville 7th - 12th grade students can join the Landing every other Sunday evening from 6 - 8 p.m. in the Hangar. Students can come together to eat, play games, hang out with friends, worship, and hear God's Word. There are also special events held throughout the year. Come check it out and bring a friend! Add meeting times and special events to your calendar!

Come check out THRIVE, the new student ministry for 7th - 12th grade students at Faith-Columbia! Thrive gathers the third Wednesday of every month from 6:30 - 8 p.m. to play games, share snacks and conversation, learn about Jesus and to live life together. Invite your friends!


Faith seeks to build and strengthen all student's Gospel knowledge and to help with their spiritual maturity. This includes preparing them to partake in the sacrament of Holy Communion. Class availabilty and schedule between campuses may vary.

Student Starting Point

More information about
Student Starting Point 2018-2019
coming soon!

Student Starting Point is offered to all 7th – 8th grade students at Oakville and 7th - 12th grade students at Columbia. Our confirmation process requires students to both attend our Student Starting Point class and also attend Chill Camp, our confirmation retreat offered in the winter. Student Starting Point covers the basics of our Christian faith as understood by Lutherans, and Chill Camp allows for the confirmands to get connected with the other students as they learn, worship, and have fun together over the course of a weekend.

Student Starting Point meets one night per week for 10 weeks and is offered twice each year. There are also two confirmation services each year. Chill Camp is offered once per year, but students have the option to attend either session of Student Starting Point.
