What is Confirmation?

From the Small Catechism: Confirmation is a public rite of the church preceded by a period of instruction in which baptized Christians learn about the confession, life, and mission of the Christian Church.

 

In our church it is a two year period of study where our 7th and 8th graders meet with Pastor Lutjens to study the ‘Six Chief Parts’ of the Catechism: The 10 Commandments, The Apostles’ Creed, The Lord’s Prayer, Baptism, Confession, and The Lord’s Supper.
