Are you NOT a family member of a Freshman Confirmand and interested in helping with setup, serving, or cleanup???
Confirmation Ceremony in the Sanctuary 1:00pm – 2:00pm
This is a special service where Lutheran teenagers (many who started their Christian journey when their parents brought them to be baptized as a baby) now make a public “confirmation” that their faith is in Jesus Christ. The Confirmands will individually recite their memory verse and then the Apostle’s Creed as a group. Parents will join their Confirmand at the baptismal font for a special blessing and then at the altar for a prayer with their pastors. Your youth pastors will have a special message for you and some special gifts will be given on behalf of your church. At the end of the service, family pictures with the pastors and your youth directors will be available.
This will be a day that celebrates your journey of developing your Christian faith and we hope you always remember it!
