What is Confirmation?

Confirmation is a three-year program beginning in the fall of sixth grade and concluding in the spring of the eighth grade year. Special emphasis is given to the Bible, Martin Luther’s Small Catechism, the Lutheran Church, worship, and faith development. Confirmation classes are separated by grade (6th, 7th, 8th) and meet on Sunday mornings from 9:20 a.m. to 10:20 a.m. Every grade has a yearly Confirmation retreat and 7th grade students attend one week of summer Bible camp. Eighth graders will participate in Faith Outings designed to enhance classroom curriculum. It is our goal to engage our young people: on a personal faith journey, through large and small group discussions, guided activities, retreats, and special projects. We strive to provide a meaningful, yet engaging Confirmation ministry. We do not attempt to be Bible scholars. We do attempt to guide our students in a manner that promotes self-discovery and the development of an ongoing faith that is centered in Jesus Christ. The Affirmation of Baptism, or Confirmation, marks the completion of Calvary’s three-year program. Eighth graders who have completed all the requirements, and are ready to publicly profess the faith into which they were Baptized. Information regarding the day of Confirmation will be given at a later date. 

Why do we practice Confirmation?

The Lutheran church believes, teaches, and practices infant Baptism because we believe God’s Holy Spirit can and does give faith, even to infants. Confirmation is an opportunity to give the person, who was Baptized as an infant, to stand up on their own to publicly affirm their faith they received in Baptism. While Confirmation is not required in the Bible, it is an important heritage to Lutherans. Confirmation is a personal and voluntary act that connects people to the congregational membership. By being Confirmed, a person is publicly proclaiming they have studied the Bible, the doctrine of the Lutheran Church, and they believe in it and trust in Jesus as their Savior.  

Calvary’s Confirmation program seeks to equip students to grow in lifelong faith through fostering a connection between what is taught in class, their experience in worship, and their daily lives. This program also helps students to understand they are a vital and valued part of God’s mission in this place and the world.
