Confirmation

Confirmation

Confirmation is a collection of experiences for the head, heart and hands of high school students to dive deeper into a living faith in Jesus Christ. Based on Luther's teachings in the Small Catechism, discover the heart of Jesus story is show to us God's love and grace through God's Word and the Sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion. Students are invited to make promises (echoing those that their families made at their baptism) and to live in Christian community and serve their neighbor.
