5th - 8th Grade
LIVING WATER CONFIRMATION. One of the largest programs at Shepherd of the Lake. We have about 500 kids and 100+ adults singing contemporary Christian music, engaging in messages and games, followed by participating in small group breakout sessions where kids learn about following in the way of Jesus. There are grade specific retreats and events. At this age youth start practicing being leaders on Sunday mornings.
Living Water Confirmation
Confirmation that kids love! High energy and with Biblical messages that connect. Wednesdays 6:30-8:00pm with pizza dinner before.
Living Water Guide Sheets
Guide Sheets are tools to assist LW leaders in navigating faith conversations and lessons to their small group.
Affirmation of Baptism Registration
Each child of God has the opportunity to affirm the promises made for them at their baptism. Through the Living Water program, your child has been learning about God and is now ready to make these promises for themselves.
Worship Notes are an effective tool to help LW kids engage with the worship experience.
This is an overnight event rotating through multiple locations. The evening includes: Dakotah Fitness Center - swimming, gym and/or ice skating, Movie at Southbridge Shakopee Theater and Bowling/Arcade/Laser Tag at Bowlero in Lakeville. Have a friend you’d like to come, but they do not attend Living Water, no problem! We’d love to have them register and join us for the evening.
