"What is this?"

More than a beloved lutheran slogan,

Confirmation is all about asking "What is this?" or "what does this mean?"


  • Catechesis (fancy way of saying "religious instruction". Pronounced cat-a-key-sis). 
  • Exposure to the ways of the local parish as well as the universal Church.
  • Relationship-building between peers, the pastor, a personal mentor, and other members of the congregation. 
  • Looking at the self in relation to God and seeing God in our daily lives. This leads us to ponder what happened at our baptism and what continues to happen because of it?

There are two years of instruction where we rely heavily on the Small Catechism and the Bible. The beginning of the third year, we prepare for the culminating event: the Rite of Affirmation of Baptism. This is a glorious day when the class presents to the congregation their faith statements, their desire to become members of the church, and their affirmation and gratefulness for what happened to them in baptism! Their family and sponsors come forward and, after making public vows, they are gifted with the laying on of hands and blessed with the Holy Spirit! 

Confirmation Updates


The Confirmation Classes have followed the Lent schedule attending each Wednesday nights' Soup Supper Service. They then participate in all the Holy Week services (not daily prayer services) as acolytes.

No class Wednesday March 27 OR April 3.

SACRAMENT (gifts Jesus told us to use)
