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.
