Confirmation is an educational process in which we seek to work with our young people to help them deepen their relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ as well some of their fellow members here at Faith Lutheran. The goal is prepare teenagers to participate in the Affirmation of Baptism in the fall of their 10th grade year. It works like this:
7th and 8th Grade
Young people participate in 27 weekly sessions (classes do not meet during Lent) on Wednesday nights during the school year. They meet together in a large group for a lively presentation that lasts about 50 minutes. Then they break into small groups led by two adults from the congregation for the remaining 25 minutes of the session. One year our focus is the Bible and the next year we study Luther's Small Catechism. The 2012-2013 Schedule (updated) can be found here.
During the 9th grade year confirmands meet monthly with mentors of their choosing to discuss various aspects of the Christian life. The 2012-2013 Schedule can be found here.
In the fall of their tenth grade year, the young people gather for their final four class sessions before the are confirmed on the second Sunday of November. They finish their work on their Faith Statement which becomes part of the basis for their confirmation interview. They choose a confirmation verse and complete a banner and stole to be presented on the Sunday of their Affirmation of Baptism.
