Confirmation Sermon Notes

 

Wednesday evenings, 6:30-8:00 p.m.  (school year only)
Confirmation is a special time of study during which we teach the foundation of the Christian faith to young people. At the end of study the students then have the opportunity to “confirm” their faith, or in other words, to say “yes” to what God did for them in baptism when God claimed them forever.

 

It is important for confirmation age youth that we not only teach them the “information,” but that we teach it in an environment that nurtures their faith and builds their relationship to other Christians.

God created us in community. Almost all Bible stories relate to the whole people of God. Christian faith is not about God and me, it is about God and us and me, in relationship. Our responsibility is to model this caring community as we learn together. Without the context of community relationship, the information is meaningless.

 

To accomplish this, each student is a part of a small group for the year. Each small group is led by a mentor(s) who learns with the students and spends time with them in fellowship, prayer, and service. The small group is a place to care for one another, to listen to each other, and to help each other learn about the faith.

 

Confirmation is a 3-year program at Lord of Life. During the first and second years, we study the Bible, the Lord’s Prayer, the Apostles’ Creed, and the Ten Commandments. During the third year, the students are partnered with an adult mentor who will guide them in writing a faith statement.

 

In the long run, we hope that kids will build relationships to carry them through their high school years and keep them connected to the Church.
