Confirmation

Trinity offers a 4 year confirmation ministry that begins in the fall of 6th grade and continues until the students affirm their Baptism with the Rite of Confirmation in the fall of their 10th grade year.

Confirmation Schedule

Why does the church have confirmation?

Confirmation is not found anywhere in Scripture, but as Lutherans we teach that students should experience confirmation. Why?

  • Confirmation is an affirmation of the baptismal vow. Many of us were baptized as infants or young children, before we were able to make those baptismal promises ourselves. Confirmation is a a chance to learn about the faith into which we were baptized and to personally affirm our faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.

  • Confirmation provides instruction about becoming active members or partners of the faith community or church.

Trinity’s Confirmation Ministry is not about a special blessing nor is it a final step in one’s church life. Confirmation is a new beginning, a step in the lifelong journey of faith in Christ. This is not a graduation, a program or schooling. Confirmation is an elective experience that includes worship, service, learning and fellowship.

Confirmation focuses on learning and faith development. 

The GOAL of our program is to prepare our youth to make a
lifelong commitment to follow Christ.
