Confirmation

null

THE BASIS FOR THIS MINISTRY

A rather clear command of Jesus—”Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.”  We understand His command as an expression of His love.  Because He loves us He desires that every generation hear His Word, know the truths that He taught and respond in faith to the promises poured out in Holy Baptism.

 

Additionally, the Scriptures teem with passages about passing on the true teachings and doctrines of the orthodox Christian faith.  St Paul writes – “But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.” (2 Timothy 3: 14 – 15)

 

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?

Confirmation at Faith Lutheran is currently for all incoming 7TH and 8TH grade students.  It is required for any and all who desire to receive Christ’s Real Presence at Holy Communion.

 

WHEN DOES CONFIRMATION BEGIN?

Confirmation classes run from the first Sunday after Labor Day through the end of April.  Classes meet Sunday evenings (except on holiday weekends), from 5:00pm to 7:00pm.

 

The Sunday class schedule:

5:00pm – 5:30pm, Open gym and food

5:30pm – 6:20pm, Teaching time

6:20pm – 7:00pm, Small group discussion

 

Along with classwork, there will be opportunities for the teens to…

  • Attend a confirmation retreat (at an outdoor ministry);
  • Participate in service projects;
  • And enjoy social get-togethers (Christmas party and caroling)

There will be a Confirmation Orientation for parents and students the last Sunday of August, meeting in Faith’s sanctuary following the 11:00am Service.  At that time a handbook with expectations and a detailed calendar will be given out.
