Confirmation 
The Rite of Confirmation is a extraordinary privilege available to all baptized Christians.

It is not a sacrament (commanded by Christ) or a prerequisite to receive Holy Communion (communion is for the baptized, who have been examined and absolved by the pastor). 
 
For those who choose to receive the blessing of confirmation, please consider the following:
 
  •  Confirmation is optional, it is a man made rite, no Christian is required to be confirmed.

  •  Confirmation is a privilege, a chance to deepen and affirm the faith given at baptism, setting up the confirmand for a lifetime of Christian learning. 

  •  Confirmation is deeply rooted in the history of Christianity and the Lutheran Church, it is considered a milestone moment in the life of a Christian (baptism, first communion, confirmation, marriage, funeral).

  • Does the child wish to be confirmed? (Sports, music, drama, confirmation…Lots of ways to spend your Wednesday evenings, we are given lots of freedom in choosing how to live our lives. You cannot do it all, you must choose what is most important to you.)

  • Age range usually 11-16 years old, grade level is immaterial. Is the student mature enough to undergo 2 years of intense extra curricular Christian education? Maturity is determined by the parents and the pastor. 
 Successful completion of Year I is always required to move onto Year II. Both Years can be repeated as often as necessary. 
                 
Year I - An overview study of the Scriptures, God’s revealed Word to humanity, setting up the foundational knowledge required to comprehend and benefit from year II.
 
Year II- A in-depth study of Luther’s Small Catechism and other catechetical resources. The successful completion of year II will earn the confirmand the right to be confirmed before the public assembly of God’s Church, as they make bold confessions of faith and promises to live a life worthy of the name of Christian.
