Overview of St. John’s Confirmation Program

Purpose: Guiding students to be disciples of Jesus Christ.

What is Confirmation?

When a child is baptized, the parents and sponsors take responsibility for the child’s faith by making promises to faithfully …

  • Bring them to the services of God’s house
  • Teach them the Lord’s Prayer, the Creed, and the Ten Commandments
  • Place in their hands the Holy Scriptures
  • Provide for their Christian Faith, that, living in the covenant of their Baptism and in communion with the Church, they may lead godly lives until the day of Jesus Christ.

Confirmation is an exciting student ministry program where the church works to continue this journey of faith started at Baptism. At the end of the Confirmation ministry experience, students have a celebration service called the “Affirmation of Baptism.” At this service, students make a public profession of their faith and declare their intentions to live this faith out. In Baptism, God said, “Yes” to us. During confirmation, we are preparing our students to say, “Yes” in return.

St. John’s Confirmation program is a “2 plus” year program that encompasses the 7th and 8th grade school years, with the Affirmation of Baptism celebrated in the fall of the 9th grade year.

Our Confirmation program uses a curriculum built on scripture, Luther’s Small Catechism, small group discussion, and materials from “Here We Stand,” published by Augsburg Fortress. Focus is placed on students connecting to the promises made at their Baptism, living and serving as part of a community of faith, and how their faith connects to real life. Classes alternate between large group instruction and small group discussion, with the small group materials encouraging sharing and hearing of different viewpoints, and the building of relationships among students and with small group leaders.

7th and 8th graders will meet in the Fellowship Hall from 6:00-6:55 p.m. on most Wednesdays throughout the school year to study scripture, catechism topics (10 Commandments, Apostle’s Creed, Lord’s Prayer & the sacraments) and faith-in-life topics. There is an offsite weekend sleepover retreat held in the spring.

The 9th graders will meet on Sundays, to prepare to affirm their Baptism and plug in to congregational life. There is an offsite weekend sleepover retreat held in the fall.Teaching will be done by the pastors, youth director or trained lay leaders, with the students divided up into small groups for discussion. Each small group will have 6-8 youth and 2 adult small group leaders/mentors.
