Confirmation is period of time in which students are taught the basic elements of Christian faith from a Lutheran perspective. The purpose of confirmation is to prepare students for a public profession of the faith into which they were baptized.
In Holy Baptism our gracious heavenly Father liberates us from sin and death by joining us to the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are born children of a fallen humanity; in the waters of baptism we are reborn children of God and inheritors of eternal life. By water and the Holy Spirit we are made members of the Church which is the body of Christ. As we live with God and with God’s people, we grow in faith, love and obedience to the will of God. (Lutheran Book of Worship, page 121)
Confirmation is primarily about building relationships; with God, ourselves, one another, God’s church, and the world. We do this through classes that focus on deepening our understanding of God’s story through study of the Bible, Luther’s Small Catechism, and Marks of Discipleship (Prayer, Study, Worship, Hospitality, Service, Stewardship, and Encouragement).
Our students enjoy discussions about not only the lessons but how faith applies to their lives at home, school and their futures. We also enjoy activities and games that supplement our lessons, and some that are just plain fun! Call the church office for more information or if you have further questions.
Classes are held Wednesdays from 6:30pm – 7:30pm
