Amped Confirmation

What is AMPED?

AMPED is a confirmation program for 6th—8th graders. It is designed to foster faith development through biblical lessons, relationship building, and faith application lessons.

AMPED recognizes that students are on a continual faith journey throughout their lives. This program is not designed to be a culmination of their religious education. Rather, AMPED attempts to meet students where they are at and then challenge them, encourage them, and support them as they continue to grow towards spiritual maturity.

AMPED uses service projects, activities, lessons, worship and relationships as tools to help kids grow in their biblical knowledge as well as develop the wisdom and courage to use these things in their daily lives.

  • 6th grade students enroll in the Tuesday evening program at Madison Campus.
  • 7th and 8th grade students enroll in the Wednesday evening program at Verona Campus.

Summer Activities

Head to our Middle School Summer Ministry Page to find activities, trips, and programs for the summer! Faith development, community, and fun does not just happen during the school year with AMPED! Note that completed 8th graders are encouraged to join in high school activities.



Summer provides us with lots of time to rest and travel, but know that connections continue for all middle schoolers well past the school year’s end. Completed 8th graders are welcome to join in on high school activities; after all, the peak of faith community involvement doesn’t have to end at confirmation. There are tons of options both at Good Shepherd and away! See more here.
