Adolescence is a turbulent time in the life of most students; they are trying to define who they are and looking for a place to belong. Confirmation is a place where students in the 7th & 8th grades can explore the Lutheran faith and learn more about what it means to be a Christian. While the program is a systematic study of Christian doctrine, we have a lot of fun, connecting with each other as friends who learn together, question together, play together and serve together under the supervision of caring adult small group leaders.
Confirmation meets weekly during the academic year over a two-year period, culminating in the Rite of Confirmation where students have the opportunity to publicly affirm their Christian faith and celebrate together. The Rite of Confirmation service is held annually on Reformation Sunday, which is on the last Sunday of October. Confirmands present their “life verse” from God’s Word during this meaningful service and celebration.
Pre-Confirmation gives 6th graders the opportunity to prepare more fully for the Rite of Confirmation. Students meet once per month on Monday evenings during the school year from 5:00-7:30 pm.
To ask questions about the Confirmation Ministry or if you would like to register your 6th to 8th grade student, please contact the Director of Children’s Ministry, Roseanna Andersen.
