Proverbs 22: 6 "Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it." (ESV)
what is confirmation?
Confirmation is a public rite of the church preceded by period of instruction in which baptized Christians learn about the confession, life, and mission of the Christian Church.
Confirmation students attend a two-year program, usually in 7th and 8th grade, that will teach them about the Bible and Lutheran Theology. We typically meet on Wednesday evenings for 90 minutes, during the school year.
Confirmation students and their families are expected to attend church on a regular basis and be living out their faith in service to the church and others. Students are also expected to take notes on the sermon and turn them in.
Volunteer Service Hours
Confirmation students are required to complete 15 hours of volunteer service per year. There are many ways to fulfill this: Acolyte, Assist in the Nursery, Assist with Sunday School, Assist at Vacation Bible School, etc.
Rite of Confirmation
At the end of two years, and once all requirements are met, students will participate in the "Rite of Confirmation" during a worship service at Immanuel. They will confirm their baptism and be welcomed as members of the church.
