Upcoming Activities & Events:

BONFIRE & HAYRIDE! Meet at the Holder's Farm (address below). At the farm there's an old-time rustic cabin, horses & donkeys in pens up the hill, ducks, a small pond with fish, and lots of space!

Come hungry! We will have hotdogs & chips and s’mores! We will gather around the fire for a short Bible devotion and to sing a couple worship songs. Then we'll play a group game and finally go for a hayride around the farm in the dark!

What's a hayride? We ride (sitting) on a flat/low to the ground trailer that's pulled by a tractor. Traditionally there's hay on the trailer (that's why it's called a HAYride) to sit on, but there will not be hay on this trailer. Please bring a old blanket to sit on.

The bonfire is LARGE and exciting! Our hosts (the Holder's) monitor the fire and have a water hose nearby.

Parents, family members, and friends welcome!


When:  Sun/Sept 12, 5-8pm 

Who: Students in 6th-8th, and 9th-12th grade

Location:  Meet at the Holder's farm (5895 Joe Martin Rd, Cookeville)

Bring:  Blanket for the hayride (optional- bring a chair for sitting around the fire).

Do you like to fish? Would you like to come early and fish in the pond from 4-5pm? There's catfish and bass in the pond (for catch and release). If planning to fish, you will need to supply your own fishing pole, bait, etc. Planning to fish? Please indicate so when you fill out the signup. Thanks!

Confirmation Classes

Confirmation classes at Heavenly Host Lutheran Church will start with a "Welcome Night" for new and returning students and their parents on Wed, Sept 15th @ 6:15pm. Class will meet regularly on Wednesdays, starting Sept 29th. Class time (afternoons/evenings) will be determined when we gather on the 15th. We look forward to seeing you on the 15th!

Confirmation Program Overview

Our Confirmation program is a two-year class that aims to equip students to better understand the Bible, to grow in their Christian faith, and in their relationship with Jesus! Students begin at various grade levels (often 6th, 7th, or 8th grade). Class typically starts in September and meets on Wednesday in the afternoon or evening. Visit with Pastor or DCE Emily asap if your student is interested in starting class this year. Thank you! 

Confirmation Sunday

Confirmation Sunday is typically on Palm Sunday (March) during the 10:30am worship service.

Students that complete their confirmation studies outside of the traditional class model are confirmed on a Sunday sometime during the year.
