Looking forward to  a great year of Confirmation!  

The Fall Semester  Begins August 24th/25th


WHAT IS CONFIRMATION?

Confirmation at La Casa de Cristo Lutheran Church is an opportunity for teenagers to publicly “confirm” their faith in Jesus Christ. At a baby’s baptism, parents make promises to raise their child in the Christian faith and give them an opportunity to make the Christian faith their own. We provide an opportunity for youth to experience God’s love in worship, discipleship, and community. Together, we will explore our GREAT God and support them in taking personal ownership of their Christian faith.

Our Confirmation program is a two-year program for 7th and 8th grade kids on either Tuesday or Wednesday nights from 5:00-6:00pm during the school year, whichever night works best with your schedule. Sunday morning church and youth group attendances as well as community service are also aspects of our program. At the end of the program, we have a special way of celebrating our youth “confirming” their faith in Jesus Christ in the month of October when they begin their Freshmen year in High School.

In short, Confirmation at La Casa is awesome! Lifelong friendships and memories are made and teens experience the love of God and make personal commitments to follow Jesus for life!

Classes will be held in person. You choose which is best for your family. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns!

Confirmation Prayer Sponsors

What is a Confirmation Prayer Sponsor?

A Confirmation Prayer Sponsor showers our Junior High Confirmation program and at least one of our lucky youth in prayer. Prayer Sponsors can remain anonymous, if they wish, as they pray for their Confirmand on a regular basis. Confirmation Prayer Sponsors also write them letters of encouragement (at least 2 per year), send birthday and Christmas cards, and can reveal themselves on their very special Day of Confirmation with hugs and love and a modest gift if they choose. Our Junior High Youth Ministry hosts about 100 Confirmation kids and would love at least 100 Prayer Sponsors!

Who can be a Prayer Sponsor?

If La Casa de Cristo Lutheran Church is your home church, we invite you to be a prayer sponsor! Every parent, grandparent, people who like praying, and people who would like an opportunity to be motivated to pray more, please consider being a prayer sponsor.

Confirmation Weekend 2020​

Confirmation Camp

We grow in our relationship to the Father, because of the Son, through the Holy Spirit.

Kids and friends who are not involved with Confirmation are still welcome to attend. We as junior high ministry leaders hope that the teenager and their family would want to make La Casa de Cristo their church home. It is our hope that you both will see the value in our Confirmation Program and continue on in our youth group.  We have ways for kids to catch-up on missed Confirmation course classes (if they decide to join mid-program).

Confirmation Camp has been a long-standing tradition of La Casa de Cristo for 40+ years. It is not uncommon to hear people say the highlight of their Confirmation experience was Confirmation Camp. Many of those who have gone to camp would even say it was the time when their relationship with God made sense to them for the first time. As well, many say that they made a personal decision to follow Christ with their whole heart after, or during, their time there. Wherever a kid is on their faith journey, Confirmation Camp will play a special role.

Our Confirmation Camp is a requirement for our Confirmation Program. This is because Confirmation Camp offers a curriculum for better understanding the Trinity and one’s relationship with God, as well as developing important relationships with others who attend.

Our Confirmation Program is a two-year program for 7th and 8th grader. Kids become eligible for Confirmation Camp on the Summer between their 7th and 8th-grade year. If kids miss their first chance to go, they must plan on attending the camp in the following year to finish Confirmation. We do not offer a makeup class for Confirmation Camp as it is impossible to recreate.

Camp Schedule:
  • Morning sessions on the Trinity in the beautiful Sedona outdoors
  • Afternoon fun and games, swimming at the creek
  • Evening worship and messages, strengthening our relationship with God
  • 3 delicious camp meals and YOUR cookie snacks, offered each day
