Confirmation

Confirmation is a rite of passage for our young people who are transitioning from childhood to adolescence to adulthood. Many Christians are baptized as babies. Their parents make the decision to have them baptized and promise to raise them in the faith through the church. When being confirmed, a young person affirms their own baptism. They are saying yes to continuing in the faith of Jesus Christ.

At MPLC a child begins our 3-year confirmation program when they enter 6th grade. Typically, students are confirmed in the fall of their 9th grade year. 

Expectations

2023/2024

Worship Attendance

Regular in person worship attendance is expected for all confirmation students and their families.

Worship Response Forms help ensure that the student is understanding and integrating worship into their lives.

Service Connections

Service connections can be a service project with the church, in the community, through school, etc. It must be hands-on service for at least 1 hour.

When they complete a service project, students submit an online form.

Each year the congregation hosts an all-class service project.

Wednesday Confirmation Instruction

Confirmation instruction is held on Wednesday evenings during 2 or 3 short sessions over the school year. If a student misses a class, it is expected that they will watch the lesson online to make up the missed class.

Confirmation Camp

The summer after they complete the 7th OR 8th grade, confirmands attend Lutherdale Bible Camp for a week of Confirmation Camp. 

Confirmation Retreat at Lutherdale!

We'll join with youth in grades 6-9 from other congregations in a weekend retreat at Lutherdale Camp on February 23-25, 2024. Find out more here!
