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.

Terri’s Two Cents – May 2013

 

Because of the work the Confirmation students and their guides did on the Youth Led Worship, I’ve been thinking a lot about kindness and compassion. The message of the service was about “Rachel’s Challenge”, a program used in schools to promote kindness and combat bullying. We even talked about it in High School Bible Study

I was reminded that a few years ago, one of the High Schools in the area hosted a similar program about empathy. The students were encouraged to write their life “stories” on signs that they hung around their necks. The idea was that people would be treated better if others around them knew they were going through a tough time. I thought it was a great idea. I agreed that if more people knew about the challenges we go through, they would be kind and patient
