Confirmation at Light of Christ

Confirmation at Light of Christ is a three-year interactive program for 7th, 8th, and 9th grade students that takes place during the school year on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8pm. After three years in the Confirmation community, the Rite of Confirmation (Affirmation of Baptism) is celebrated in the spring of their 10th grade year during a Sunday worship service.

Confirmation is a time for relationship, outreach, community and growth in the knowledge of who God is and how God is working in the world. Confirmation isn’t just an academic process or a requirement for membership at Light of Christ. Rather, the goal of Confirmation is to use the Bible, fellowship, service-learning, and testimonies to create a strong community of young people who have the tools necessary to live out a life of faith.

The curriculum is structured around the promises that are made at the Affirmation of Baptism.  The Confirmands are first asked to confess their faith in the words of the Apostles’ Creed.  The creed is a formal, public way of confessing: “I believe I am a beloved child of God, who is loving, gracious, and forgiving.”  Then they are asked if they will continue in the covenant God made with them in Holy Baptism.  This promise has five parts:

1) to live among God’s faithful people
2) to hear God’s Word and to share in the Lord’s Supper
3) to proclaim the good news of God in Jesus Christ
4) to serve all people following the example of our Lord Jesus Christ 
5) and to strive for justice and peace in all the earth.  

This curriculum is designed to prepare our Confirmation students to make this profession and promise: I believe I am a beloved child of God, and I promise to strive to live as a beloved child of God.  

We accomplish this with various learning tools and fellowship strategies:

Wednesday Nights
Confirmation meets on Wednesday nights throughout the school year, normally from 6:30-8:00 pm. These evenings take various forms, from Content nights (where we discuss and learn in both small and large group settings), to Service nights (where we serve our church and community), and Fellowship nights (where we have fun!). During Lent, Confirmation does not meet, however students are still expected to attend Wednesday night services (must complete 3 Worship Notes during Lent), as well as complete a personal project.

Small groups
All Confirmation students are in cohorts with their peers. Over the years, these groups form trust and friendships as they discuss and have fun together.

Retreat
This year our Confirmation retreat for all students will be in the spring. Save the date and don't miss it... May 1-2, 2021 at Lake Wapogasset Lutheran Bible Camp in Amery, WI.

Service
Confirmation students are expected to complete 12 Service Hours each year. Of these 12 hours, at least half need to be completed at/through church. Participation and leadership in worship is an important service to the church.
