Confirmation

Confirmation is a special time in the faith journey of our young people.  It’s a time in our Lutheran-Christian tradition when young adults contemplate the meaning of their faith and decide to confirm (or not) the vows which were spoken for them at their baptism.  It is a time when the faith of their family and congregation becomes THEIR faith.    

In 6th Grade we begin preparing future Confirmands and their families for the serious commitments they will make on their Confirmation Day (at the end of 8th grade). The Family Faith Stepping Stone Event for 2016 is Surviving Adolescence on three Tuesday nights (Oct. 4, 11, 18) part of RE-Fuel. 

In 7th Grade there are two Faith Family Stepping Stone Events for 2016-17 on two Saturday mornings (Faith in the Home Part 1 - Oct. 22, Part 2 - Mar. 4). 

In 8th Grade Confirmands will make some very serious commitments to (1) make a public confession of their faith, (2) make public vows of faithfulness to God, and (3) be set apart, commissioned and invited into sacred service in mission and ministry.  That’s exciting, but also intimidating.  We know it is absolutely crucial for us as a church and especially you as parents to partner with your teen in this journey.  Click to see the 8th grade schedule of events.
