Confirmation is both a rite of public affirmation of one's Baptism and a life-long journey of faith. Through our Baptism into Christ's death and resurrection the door to new life in Jesus Christ was opened for us. As we journey into adulthood we understand and appreciate what our Baptism means for everyday living. The Affirmation of Baptism is the event at which one reaffirms one's Baptism in a public way. Based on their public profession of faith, the church offers the youth membership in the church and greater responsibilities in the Christian community and its mission in the world. Affirming and living out the call of our Baptism is a life-long journey of faith. It is a journey which is sustained by God's grace and full of new discoveries. To enable our youth to grow in grace and the knowledge of their Christian faith, Bethel Lutheran Church has established a program of study which begins with mid-week instruction in the 7th grade year and leads toward the Affirmation of Baptism in the Spring of the 8th grade. Through classes, social concerns projects, and at least one Friday evening at the church. We hope that the Good News of God's love is made real to each young person.
It is necessary for those who wish to be confirmed to fully participate in the congregation's program. The pastor will work with youth and families to accommodate those joining the church amidst the program year. Make-up lessons will be posted to this page for those whom may occasionally miss a lesson.
