Confirmation

Posted on

Confirmation is a time of spiritual growth in the life of the students. This means that they will come into a closer, more meaningful relationship with their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Each year of study in school and home has lead them to this point. Now is the time for them to take all that they have learned and begin to process it into their own personal lives. They will learn what it means to be 1) a Christian, and 2) a Lutheran. In confirmation class they will come to know that it is important to know Jesus personally as their Savior. They will also learn that it is important to feed their faith regularly through worship, study and prayer.

Confirmation at St. Paul’s school will be during school time: 8-9 a.m. Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.

Confirmation for the public school and home schooled students will begin on Wednesday, September 6 from 4:30-6:00 p.m.

Confirmation for the 8th grade will be on Sunday, April 22 in the 10:30 a.m. service. Public questioning will be on Saturday evening, April 21 at the 6:00 p.m. service.
