Our Saviour’s confirmation classes are on Wednesday evenings, 6:30 pm-7:30 pm. Starting September 13th.
What is Confirmation?
Confirmation is experiencing God together in Faith! It is a lifelong process of learning by receiving and affirming the gifts of God’s grace, through study, discussion and prayer. At baptism, the spirit is given so that we may never stop learning. The goals of Confirmation at Our Saviour’s are:
- Foster Christian relationships
- Teach the basics of the Lutheran faith
- Promote a personal commitment and relationship with Christ
- Open opportunities for families to communicate their faith
- Connect baptismal affirmation to daily life
Overall Program Goals and Requirements
Confirmation goals and requirements are offered to help students build a solid foundation for their faith journey. They will do this with fellowship, discipleship, worship and service to others. Consistency in these things will help students build that foundation.
Ages for Confirmation
The program here at Our Saviour’s is primarily designed for students in 7th-9th grade. If a student older than 9th grade wishes to confirm their faith, we would encourage them to talk to one of the pastors so that a course of study could be designed for them to explore their faith journey.
This new curriculum challenges students to think theologically and ask the deep questions about the Bible, Lutheran History and their lives as people of faith. It is made up of sixty lessons. Each lesson will confront students with real questions about the Bible, church and Lutheran doctrine. It helps them to see that faith is an ongoing process, not a one shot deal.
