Confirmation

What is Confirmation?

When infants and children are brought to be baptized, parents and sponsors make faith promises for them: "To live with them among God's faithful people, bring them to the word of God and the holy supper, teach them the Lord's Prayer, the Creed, and the Ten Commandments, place in their hands the holy scriptures, and nurture them in faith and prayer, so that they may learn to trust God, proclaim Christ through word and deed, care for others and the world God made, and work for justice and peace." -Service of Holy Baptism

In the service of Affirmation of Baptism, confirmands “confirm” / “affirm” these baptismal promises for themselves, saying, "In faith, I turn to Christ."

Our confirmation curriculum is a two-year rotation for 7th and 8th graders. It is based on the Small Catechism (Apostles’ Creed, Ten Commandments, and Lord’s Prayer), the Lutheran Sacraments (Holy Baptism and Holy Communion), Lutheran Church History, and the Bible (Old and New Testament). This curriculum prepares middle-school students to publicly affirm the promises made at the time of their baptism. It is a process of gaining a deeper understanding of God’s love, our relationship with God, God’s people, and God’s creation. 

In 2023-2024, we will focus on the Bible. In 2024-2025, we will focus on the small catechism, Lutheran church history, and sacraments. Confirmation classes are a place for students to seek deeper understanding about the church, the Bible, and God, while asking questions, stewarding the mysteries of God (1 Cor. 4:1), and having fun!
