Confirmation

Confirmation at Trinity is a three-year program (generally 6th – 8th grades), culminating in the public Affirmation of Faith, made during the Spring of the third year.

When students Affirm their Baptismal promises and beliefs before the congregation, they will be making a public profession that they will:

  • Live among God’s faithful people
  • Hear the Word of God and share in the Lord’s Supper
  • Proclaim the Good News of God in Christ through word and deed
  • Serve all people, following the example of our Lord Jesus
  • Strive for justice and peace in all the earth

It is the goal of our Confirmation Program to prepare students to wholly understand and faithfully embrace these promises. This understanding will come through three focus areas: Classroom Instruction, Life Experiences, and Faithful Relationships.

Classroom Instruction will cover the Old Testament, New Testament, and Small Catechism including Faith in Life and Lutheran Worship Practices.

Christian Life Experiences will include regular worship attendance, worship notes, service during worship (acolyte, usher, greet, etc.), overnight retreats, service projects, and group trips to other faith communities.

Each student in our Confirmation Program will be paired with an adult member of the congregation to be Faith Partners. These adults and students will walk this faith journey together, discovering and growing along the way.

Confirmation Classes are generally held at 5:00 p.m. on Sundays, in the Fireside Room. Following a lesson, we will all enjoy a meal together in the gym. Families will take turns providing and serving dinner.

All classes, retreats, field trips, and events for the 2017 – 2018 school year are listed below
