We strive to provide inter-generational events and devotions. We believe the youth can learn much from the adults and the adults often learn more from the youth. Events include a fall trip to the orchard, Christian music concerts, game nights, movies and more. We spend time each Sunday learning about the Word of God and encouraging each other for the week ahead.

Middle-School Confirmation: Confirmation is on Sunday mornings for students typically in sixth through eighth. All grades meet in one class using multi-media. During the three year program there is a rotation where one year the emphasis is on The Old Testament, with the next year’s focus on New Testament, and then a year on Luther’s Small Catechism
The class meets from 10:15am to 11:15am on Sundays, September through May, normally starting the Sunday following Princeton’s Homestead Festival. Once a month the class time is followed by a meal where the students’ family is encourage and welcomed to an informal gathering and meal. Each month the class participates in an additional service or fellowship event. For students who complete the three year program, confirmation Sunday is held in what would typically be the students’ freshman year on the last Sunday of October, which is Reformation Sunday.
