ELC’s confirmation ministry seeks to utilize learning, service, and fellowship to nurture the faith of young people in preparation for their Affirmation of Baptism on Confirmation Day.
Wednesday gatherings are held throughout the 7th and 8th grade years where we meet as both a large group and also in small groups to consider the basics of the faith as we find them in Luther’s Small Catechism — The Ten Commandments, The Apostles’ Creed, The Lord’s Prayer, and the Sacraments, as well as addressing current topics in faith and life.
Mark your calendars: Confirmation Camp at Sugar Creek Bible Camp will be taking place July 23rd-July 28th, 2017! More information to come.
If you are interested in enrolling in confirmation, please fill out a registration form. An introductory meeting for parents will be help on Wednesday, September 7th at 7:00 p.m. We will be taking this time to look at the challenges of raising teenagers in the faith and how we can support one another as church family. We’ll discuss the expectations and schedule for the year, and answer any questions you might have. You do not need to be a member of ELC to enroll in confirmation.
The Rite of Confirmation (Confirmation Day) is celebrated on Reformation Sunday of the student’s 9th grade year.
