Confirmation is an important milestone in the faith journey of our young people. Confirmation is not an end to training in the faith, but rather a beginning of a new journey in faith as a young adult in the church. Trinity offers a three-year Confirmation curriculum for youth in grades 6, 7, and 8. Over the course of the three years students cover the six chief parts from the Small Catechism, a book written by Martin Luther that provides a Biblically accurate and simple guide for outlining belief. Students also participate in retreats and community-building events, complete servant activities, take sermon notes to better understand the Christian message, and grow spiritually under the direction of adult mentors during the Lenten season. Upon completion of the Confirmation curriculum, students publicly affirm their faith in Christ through the Rite of Confirmation on Confirmation Sunday, typically the last Sunday in April.

Pastor Mark, Pastor Phil, and I have been busy preparing for the beginning of Confirmation Classes this year.  We are excited for the learning and spiritual growth that is taking place in these students’ lives and enjoy being a part of their faith journey!  Parents, please take a few minutes to register your student for Confirmation by Monday, September 7.  This helps us plan for the year ahead and ensure we have updated contact information from you.  You will also be asked to select if you would like to participate in person or virtually.

Please keep the Pastors, myself, the students and their families in your prayers as we look forward to Confirmation Orientation and this year!
