Confirmation is the ceremony at which Christians confess their faith and are acknowledged as being prepared to receive the Lord's Supper.
We have two ways to be confirmed in faith here at St. Paul’s.
Confirmation class is a three-year, pastor-led Bible course for youth in grades 6-8. By studying basic Bible teachings, as summarized by the six chief parts of Martin Luther’s Small Catechism, this class prepares students for a public profession of faith and communicant membership at St. Paul’s.
Children attending St. Paul’s Lutheran School have this class as part of their school day. For students attending other schools, the class is offered on Wednesdays at 4:30 p.m. View our 2018-2019 Confirmation Instruction Program booklet or contact Dr. Joel Nelson, our Minister of Discipleship at 414-422-0320 ext. 145 or for more information about enrolling your child in Confirmation classes.
Adult confirmation is far less formal than our youth confirmation ceremonies as pictured below. Adults and high school youth who wish to become members of the congregation are invited to attend the Bible study Following the Promise in which they are introduced to the basic teachings of the Bible and the Lutheran Church. At the conclusion of the study, participants are received into membership through private confirmation. Contact us for more information.
“My husband and I decided to attend the 2nd Connection Bible Study together to start the New Year on a good foot. After years of growing up in the church I came away with so much. I have gained new insight into how the Bible is translated and interpreted for truth, and also insight into the global view of mankind. Fascinating stuff!”
