Conventional Confirmation Instruction


Conventional Confirmation Instruction

Rationale:  In Baptism, parents make sacred promises on behalf of their child.  It is parent's calling to...

  • faithfully bring their children to the services of God's house
  • properly teach them the Lord's Prayer, the Creed and the Ten Commandments.
  • place in their hands the Holy Scriptures
  • and provide for their instruction in the Christian faith.                 

Our confirmation ministry seeks to engage parents and assist them in the fulfillment these promises. It is a task to which God has called them in the pursuit of Christian education for their children.  Further, our confirmation ministry exists to properly train and equip young Christians in the six chief parts of Luther’s Small Catechism, providing them with a proper view of themselves as fellow citizens with the saints and members of God’s household (Ephesians 2:19).  

Instruction in Luther's Small Catechism is accomplished through a series of six workshops (one the fall and one in the spring) over the course of grades six, seven, eight, and one fall workshop in grade nine.  These workshops will take place on a Friday evening and Saturday morning here at Trinity.

Each of the following components of our confirmation ministry, including participation in worship and T3, completion of service hours, keeping a journal, and learning essential Bible stories of the Old and New Testament is explained in detail.
