Confirmation is a public rite of the church preceded by a period of instruction designed to help baptized Christians identify with the life and mission of the Christian community.
-Luther's Small Catechism
Concordia recognizes that Confirmation is a significant spiritual event, but that it is also a process. Through instruction and faith mentoring, we hope that youth learn about the Christian faith, continue to experience what it means to be a member of the body of Christ, and are encouraged to consider how they intend to live out their lives as Christians. The process culminates with the confirmand making a public confession of their faith through their Confirmation vows.
Our Confirmation process is the core activity of our Jr. High Youth Ministry. Through a three-year process, our youth and their families express a commitment to growing in their faith (6th grade, 7th grade and 8th grade, with the Rite of Confirmation in October of their 9th grade year). The goal is really twofold: head knowledge and heart application. It is expected that, during these three years of commitment, a student will trust in Christ as his/her Lord and Savior. Confirmation at Concordia is an interactive, hands-on and learning-based model.
Confirmation/Jr. High Ministry takes place on Wednesday nights through the school year. A yearly $100 registration fee covers meals and material costs. For additional information, please contact Pastor Jacob Schultz.
