Confirmation instruction is for 7th and 8th graders and their parents.

Two years of instruction
  • Bible Overview (Chronologically cover the major themes and stories of the Bible)
  • Basics of Our Christian Faith (Martin Luther's Small Catechism)

Confirmation is a rite of passage for our youth where they are instructed in the Christian faith in which they were Baptized and to which now they will make a personal commitment to claim this faith as their own.
