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.

The 2016-2017 school year will begin in August.  The Day School confirmation class began on August 16th and will be every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 8-9 a.m.  The Wednesday confirmation class will begin on Wednesday, Sept. 7th from 4:30-6:00 p.m. and will continue on each Wednesday after that.

Students need to be in worship 2 times a month (at the minimum) to do 2 sermon summaries each month. They do need to do 1 sermon summary for the month of August and then 2 sermon summaries for Sept – April. These need to be turned in at the beginning of each new month.

On this page you will find 2 items: the Memory Work schedule for the Day School Class and the Class schedule for the Wednesday Class.
