Confirmation

"Confirmation ministry is a pastoral and education ministry of the church that helps the baptized through Word and Sacrament to identify more deeply with the Christian community and participate more fully in its mission."
The Confirmation ministry Task Force Report, ELCA, 1993

Currently young people in 7th & 8th grades meet on Sunday mornings in a study of Old and New Testaments. In addition, classes are held the first Saturday morning of each month when students and their parents review the Small Catechism.

Everything involved in confirmation ministry flows from Baptism. Confirmation happens in a living community of faith and is the responsibility of the whole congregation. Effective confirmation ministry involves use of a variety of persons and approaches. Young people benefit from confirmation ministry programs that include diverse models of learning.
