What Is Confirmation

Lutheran confirmation is also called "affirmation of baptism", and is a mature and public profession of the faith which "marks the completion of the congregation's program of confirmation ministry".


Lutheran churches do not treat confirmation as a  sacrament of the Gospel, considering that only Baptism and the Eucharist can be regarded as such. At Holy Trinity confirmation is a two year program which begins anytime after a youth enters 6th grade.  


The instruction includes 2 years of scripture in Sunday School and a study of the sacraments, prayer, Lutheran heritage, and the creeds of the church with the Pastor. Youth are invited to get involved in worship service by acolyting, ushering or reading.  Upon completing their two years of class the youth will celebrate their affirmation of baptism where they take upon themselves the promises that their parents and sponsors made at their baptism when they promise to commit to the following promises:

" You have made public profession of your faith. Do you intend to continue in the covenant God made with you in holy baptism: to live among God's faithful people, to hear the word of God and share in the Lord's supper, to proclaim the good news of God in Christ through word and deed, to serve all people, following the example of Jesus, and to strive for justice and peace in all the earth?"

Please speak with the Pastor if your child is ready to begin the program
