Confirmation

Confirmation

 

Confirmation is a public rite of the Church preceded by a period of instruction designed to help baptized Christians identify with the life and mission of the Christian community. It is necessary to be instructed in the Christian faith (I Corinthians 11:28). The rite of confirmation provides an opportunity for the individual Christian, relying on God's promise given in Holy Baptism, to make a personal public reaffirmation of faith and a lifelong pledge of fidelity to Christ. Confirmation also marks the completion of the congregation's program of childrens Christian study.

Confirmation classes begin in the sixth grade with children making their Confirmation in May of their 8th grade year.  Classes are held on Sunday mornings at 9:15am and also on Wednesday evenings at 6:30pm. Our curriculum, Here We Stand, is a three year program focusing on the Old Testamant, the New Testament and the Small Catechism.  Students are expected to serve as a Junior Liturgist in chruch services.  In 8th grade as part of Confirmation and the Confirmation ceremony we ask that each Confirmand and their family meet with Pastor Tom.

Contact Jenny LaRose at jlarose@shepherdofhills.org if you have any questions or would like to register your child for classes.
