Thinking through, practicing, strengthening, and owning one's faith is an important part of growing up. Confirmation/Affirmation of Baptism preparation at Lord of Life is designed to help parents and sponsors fulfill the promises they made at the baptisms of their children.
Confirmation is a 2+ year program at Lord of Life. Students begin as 7th graders and participate in one unit of Bible instruction and one unit on the Small Catechism.
The third "year", when they are 9th graders, they are paired with an adult mentor, who will work with them on writing a faith statement. They are then confirmed on Reformation Day, which falls at the end of October.
