Edgewater Congregations Together Confirmation is a 2-year program for students who are at least in 7th or 8th grade from Ebenezer, Unity, and Immanuel Lutheran Churches. The program is taught by the pastors from each congregation. The students are combined in a single class, alternating between one year of learning about the Bible, and a year focused on Lutheran Theology. Throughout each year, confirmands participate in special projects, a youth-led Ascension Day service, and a retreat at Lutherdale Bible Camp in Elkhorn, Wisconsin.

Youth Group consists of youth in grades 6th-12th from Immanuel, Unity, and Ebenezer Lutheran Churches, as well as other youth in the neighborhood. They usually gather for dinner, games, faith discussions, worship, and free time, attend social and service activities throughout the year, and go on a summer mission and service/learning trip. In order to keep everyone extra safe during the pandemic, we will be gathering with each other over zoom on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month and will find additional times for small groups to connect virtually and to participate in service.
