So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. Colossians 2:6-7
What is Confirmation?
The Rite of Confirmation is a time for students to confirm and affirm the promises made to them by God in their Baptism and to commit to being a developing dynamic disciple for Christ. Confirmation class is an environment that provides students a chance to explore what it means to be a Christian, to ask deep questions of themselves, God, and church leaders, and to ultimately make a public confession of faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
When and where is Confirmation?
Confirmation class is a 2 year and 2 month program every Sunday during the Sunday School hour. Students enter confirmation at the start of their 7th grade year and go until the end of October in their 9th grade year (with summers off). The Rite of Confirmation will be celebrated the last weekend of October in their 9th grade year.
The class focuses on key components of the Bible and Christian faith like the Ten Commandments, Lord’s Prayer and Apostle’s Creed. We focus on all subjects for two weeks. The first week students gather together to learn from a great adult leader. The following week the confirmands will gather in small groups to continue the conversation. The relationship built with the small group leader and others in their group allows for authentic conversation.
We meet in the Science Room of the school. Refreshments are available starting at 9:00 a.m. Class is from
9:20 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. Students should bring their Bible, pen, Small Catechism and Confirmation folder.

For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Peter 1:5-8
