The Confirmands In Action (CIA) is the Messiah youth ministry for 7th and 8th graders. It involves confirmation classes (bible and catechism instruction) which meet September – May at the youth house. In addition, CIA meets for various activities and events. We have two Lock-in’s each year, once in the fall and in the spring. CIA students alternate between going to confirmation camp at Lutherwald and a summer mission trip. Of course, CIA students serve in acolyting and nursery responsibilities as well in various group service projects. CIA students are encouraged to bring friends to the classes and activities.
