The Confirmation Retreat takes place each year in October at Camp Io-Dis-E-Ca in Solon, IA. The 2020 Fall Confirmation Retreat, originally scheduled for October 9-10, 2020, is being rescheduled to a date yet to be determined in the spring of 2021. Stay tuned for more information.


The 2019 Confirmation retreat took place October 11-12 at Camp Io-Dis-E-Ca. Our presenter was Pastor Stephen Preus of Trinity Lutheran Church in Vinton, IA. Baptism was the topic of discussion, in particular, how the baptism of infants helps us understand the Gospel of Jesus Christ and how we are all saved by God’s grace alone.
