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.
  • Both Evenings run from 6:15—8:00
  • Home School Students must also enroll to receive materials.

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.



Souper Bowl of Caring – Bring cans of soup to AMPED January 29th and 30th (or to church on Sunday the 4th) to support 3 local food pantries. (Just no tomato soup please!) During the month of December alone, Good Shepherd, Allied Drive, and Badger Prairie Food Pantries served 517 households, including 775 children and 1,043 adults. There is need in our community and we can come together to provide for those needs!

Service Blitz – February 19th & 20th This week of AMPED we won’t be gathering at church together because you’ll be out and about in the community serving with your families. This is a great opportunity to try out a new way to serve!
