Confirmation Classes are near completion as students rehearse for their Confirmation (Affirmation of Baptism) today at 9:45am in the Christian Life Center. Affirmation of Baptism is scheduled to occur next week. Confirmation classes teach our youth about Martin Luther's theology on the Ten Commandments, the Apostles' Creed, the Lord's Prayer, Holy Baptism, Confession, and the Sacrament of the Eucharist. Today is our second to last class, and we will be rehearsing for next week’s Rite of Affirmation of Baptism.
Confirmation classes are intended for youth from 7th grade and above and meet every other Sunday from November through May. This is a two-year program to help youth grow in their faith through the study of the scriptures and Luther's Catechism, concluding with the Rite of Affirmation of Baptism. The Rite of Confirmation provides an opportunity for the child, relying on God's promise given in Baptism, to make a personal public profession of the faith and a lifelong pledge of faithfulness to Christ.
