Vision for Confirmation Ministry


Confirmation ministry is centered on relationship -- with peers, parents, the church, and with Jesus Christ. -- it includes all childhood church activities, starting with baptism.


The goal of our Confirmation program is to provide our young people the opportunity to experience and reflect upon living into their faith as they prepare to affirm their baptism.  With the assistance of the Holy Spirit they are readied to commit to this life-long spiritual journey of being a servant of Christ.


Subject matter: Luther’s Small Catechism (The 10 Commandments, The Apostles Creed, The Lord’s Prayer, Baptism, Holy Communion, Confession), The Bible (It’s role in the Church, some major themes and different genres, how it came to be, and how to use it in a devotional way in one’s life), Being a Servant of Christ – working for justice and peace in all the world.


We will approach this subject matter in an experiential way that is better described as prayerful engagement than the learning of certain points or facts.


This will be a Trinitarian approach weaving together spirituality, justice, and the arts. We will use music, poetry, visual arts, and other creative methods as a way to engage within the learners a creative spirit of adventure for a lifelong journey of faith. We will explore the theme of justice in Scripture and in Jesus life, parables and proclamation about the kingdom (or reign) of God. We will test drive a variety of spiritual practices and assist one another in discerning what particular practices we’re each drawn to and how they will help us grow in connection to God and in community with others on our journey. Confirmands will be joined in the journey by adult mentors sharing how they are living out their own lives of faith as servants of Christ.
