What is confirmation?
Confirmation is a rite by which persons baptized as children publicly affirm the covenant made for them in baptism and confirm their faith. At the same time the congregation prays that each confirmand will receive the blessing of the Holy Spirit and the strengthening of his or her faith. Confirmation is a personal decision to accept the full responsibilities of membership in the church. It is also a time for the congregation to celebrate and acknowledge the confirmand’s decision.
Confirmation for Youth
A dynamic and meaningful Confirmation curriculum is offered to youth beginning around 12 years of age or in grades 7 and 8 to help youth prepare for the passage and Rite of Confirmation.
Adults are also welcome to participate in a separate, individual spiritual Confirmation curriculum.
