Confirmation is designed for families of 5th-8th grade students. Young people at this stage learn, develop, and take ownership the professions of their faith. It is also the opportunity to be commissioned into full participation in congregational life. Confirmation is promoting that lifestyle of following Jesus.

Each Wednesday Night Workshop (WNW) class is designed for the students' physical, spiritual, and emotional needs. Learning about God's Word, living God's Word, and building relationships around God's Word are vital. The church helps equip families to model and teach that faith in the homes.

Confirmation: A Family Experience

At baptism, parents, sponsors, and members of the congregation receive God’s promises and make promises to be God’s instruments in nurturing the faith of the one baptized. Confirmation is one part of that lifelong sharing of God’s gifts. Young people at this stage prepare to make their profession of faith in their own expressions and be commissioned into full participation in congregational life.

“Confirmation is a custom of the Church and not a sacrament. It links the catechumens to their Baptism, celebrates the reception of the Lord’s Word among them and, in cases where the candidates have not yet communed, welcomes them to the Lord’s Table.”  (Lutheran Service Book Agenda)

At confirmation, a young Christian declares that he or she has been baptized, confesses the faith, and shares in communion with Christ and His Church.

Mission and Vision of Confirmation

Confirmation provides a toolbox of equipping, modeling, and encouraging that promotes a lifestyle of following Jesus.

Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young,
but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct,
in love, in faith and in purity  (1 Timothy 4:12)
