Confirmation is an important step in the life of our young people. Confirmation is the time when you personally and publicly affirm the baptismal vows made for you when you were baptized. Your Affirmation of Baptism marks a milestone on your journey; however, it is not the end of the journey. It is not a graduation, but rather it is a commitment we make to walk with Christ and live out our faith. You will continue to grow spiritually to understand how God and faith work in our every day lives by what we say…. by what we do…… and by how we live.
Faith Lutheran Church will be using Faith Inkubators “Head to the Heart” Confirmation program which is designed to help nurture students, both in Large and Small group settings, as they continue on their walk with Jesus Christ and prepare to publicly affirm their Baptism and beliefs. It is also the goal of the confirmation program to educate students in high energy and fun ways, as well as help them to see how their faith is relevant in their daily life. For more information on our Confirmation Program, please read over the Confirmation Handbook and Covenant.
Each student is expected to complete 24 worship notes before they affirm their baptism. Each student is also expected to visit two churches (other than ELCA), complete 24 Ministry Hours, and complete one service project over the course of confirmation.
In January 2014, we will be starting Confirmation classes for our 6th grade students. Students will meet on Sunday mornings from 9:15 – 10:15. These students will affirm their baptism in spring of their 8th grade year.
7th and 8th Grade
7th and 8th grade students meet weekly on Wednesday evenings. Topics include: Martin Luther, the Old Testament, the New Testament, and Small Catechism. They meet together in a large group for discussion and then break into smaller groups to share highs and lows and for more in-depth discussion. Please see the class schedule for more information.
During the 9th grade year, confirmands meet one or two times a month with mentors of their choosing to discuss various aspects of the Christian life. Please see the schedule for the 9th grade classes for more information.
15 youth and 6 young adults affirmed their baptismal faith in May.
