Confirmation

Confirmation

The Rite of Confirmation is celebrated on Reformation Sunday each year that we have youth ready to be confirmed.  Confirmation is the act of affirming one’s Baptism (especially if one was baptized as an infant) and becoming an adult member of the congregation.  Our Confirmation program at Abiding Presence is three years long, for youth in 6th-8th grade.  The class meets September through May weekly (except for weeks when the Rochester Community Schools are on break.)  Each one of the three years of instruction focus on three topics in turn: Old Testament, New Testament, and Luther’s Small Catechism.  In preparation for the Rite of Confirmation the youth meet with Pastor Sharon in the fall of the 9th grade year to prepare a statement of faith that is presented on the evening before Reformation Sunday.
