This our ministry course that affirms your faith as a Lutheran. The age that starts in this group is typically from 7th - 8th grade, but over the years there have definitely been some exceptions.
Through this two year commitment contains insight on living an every day faith life and covering the history of the church since it first seed thought. Confirmation can also be understood as one’s “affirmation of baptism!” This is your personal public mark to the congregation saying, “I believe in the one God, Father Almighty…” And you can fill in the rest.
Parents are always encouraged to be heavily involved during this process as sponsors or just support. This time around they’ll be challenged through faith and loved through understanding - a pivotal moment that requires careful attention.
Confirmation class will be lead by Pastor Elaine and will start and end around Reformation.
Our most patient and attentive group, they will be brought to heights they never thought to reach and often places they will want to reflect in. This group of youth will be paired with our High School Youth in order to blend and mix as a beginning to their new maturity.
Yes this is a course where it can seem like it lasts forever, where they will read and learn unconsciously. Yes this is a course that some will say, “When is this going to be over?” — under their breathe or in their head. Yes this is a course where it seems the best part seems to be the end of learning time. In truth, it’s not.
The best part of them during this time is knowing that being confirmed is not the means to an end. It’s the complete opposite, in fact, this is the beginning of something that they’ll treasure for a lifetime.
Wednesday Nights from 6:30pm - 8:00pm will be nights they will treasure. I encourage for you to bring a friend or two and prepare for the overflowing grace and love!
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— Ephesians 2:8
