Youth Confirmation


Catechesis in "The Six Chief Parts of Christian Doctrine" as set forth plainly in Luther's Small Catechism is offered to our children, twelve, thirteen, and fourteen years of age. These "six chief parts" are as follows:
  • The 10 Commandments
  • The Apostles' Creed
  • The Lord's Prayer
  • The Sacrament of Holy Baptism
  • The Sacrament of Holy Absolution
  • The Sacrament of Holy Communion (The Lord's Supper) 
This is a two-year course, unless you start at age twelve, which meets during the regular school season on Sunday after the Divine Service.

All children who successfully complete this course are eligible for confirmation and full membership in our church.
