Confirmation

In Lutheran tradition, parents often choose to present their children for the sacrament of Baptism at an early age, sometimes as an infant. At Baptism, parents, family members, sponsors and congregational members promise to raise the child to know and love Jesus. When the child reaches middle school, the child is encourage to complete Confirmation. At the conclusion of the two year Confirmation process the "Confirmand" takes on and owns the early promises of  their Baptism.  The Confirmand is expected to participate as an adult in the work of the church: worship, reading scripture, gathering for the Lord’s Supper, and sharing conversations about God, Jesus, faith, and how they fit together in our lives.

While Confirmation  Sunday is an important milestone in the lives of young Lutheran Christians, it is the two year period of study, fellowship, activities, and conversations that shapes a strong life-long relationship with God. Confirmands also develop long-term, nurturing friendships with other youth and adults that will further shape their faith journey.

Confirmation classes are held on Sunday mornings during the Sunday School hour and Wednesday evenings.  Led by caring adults, Confirmation includes Bible study, learning the fundamentals of faith, fun weekend retreats, service projects, planning and leading a Sunday Worship, and great fellowship activities.

Confirmation focuses on 7th and 8th graders, but exceptions can be made. Contact Terri Heckroth, Youth Director, for more information. 253 862-7700.
