First Year Confirmation


A new First Year Confirmation class will begin in September. This class is for any child going into the 6th or 7th grade.

The format for the course is study and memorization of Luther’s Small Catechism. Each student will receive a copy of the Small Catechism, a brand-new ESV Youth/Teen Bible, and all needed course materials.

After successful completion of their first year, the students will be permitted to receive the Lord’s Supper as long as they are faithfully attending the 2nd Year class, faithful in worship, and faithful in assisting with other church duties such as acolyting and A/V booth operations.

The FIRST TWO Wednesdays of confirmation will be Acolyte Training and acolyte gown fitting. Afterward a serving schedule will be provided.

The First Year Confirmation class is open to any student entering the 6th or 7th grade and not just for children of members. Kids are encouraged to invite their friends and you, parents, are encouraged to speak to family or others you know who have kids but who are not bringing them up in the Christian faith.

The Parent/Pastor Meeting is scheduled for Saturday, August 22nd at 11:00 am. You are welcome to bring your kids, but this is not required. I will provide details about the class, class materials, and other information at this meeting, so parents, if you have kids who will be starting their 1st Year Confirmation, please make every effort to be at this meeting.

Thank you.
