Confirmation

Many cultures and traditions celebrate becoming an adult as a rite of passage. For example, our Jewish brothers and sisters celebrate bar and bat mitzvahs when they turn thirteen years old. Lutherans celebrate the rite of Affirmation of Baptism. Typically, youth who choose to affirm their baptisms enter into a period of study and preparation which is known commonly in the church as Confirmation.

At St. Paul's, youth are eligible to begin the process of affirming their baptisms when they enter 7th grade. The confirmation program at St. Paul's is a two-year program during which time the students study Martin Luther's Small Catechism, the Bible, and other topics of interest to the faith. Youth who are Confirmation-age, but who are not yet baptized may choose, along with their parents and in consultation with the pastor, to use the Confirmation experience as preparation for their Baptisms. Confirmation students who are already baptized will use the Confirmation experience to prepare to say "yes" to their baptisms, taking on the responsibility for their faith formation as adult members of the congregation.

Participants in the confirmation program are expected to attend confirmation classes twice a month, attend worship regularly and complete worship journals, serve the congregation in a ministry of the student's choosing, and to select a faith mentor and meet regularly with them.

Did I forget to mention that we also have a lot of fun?!
