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 Instruction is a three-year, pastor/staff minister-led training program for youth in grades 6-8. By studying Bible History and basic Bible teachings, as summarized by the six chief parts of Martin Luther’s Small Catechism, this instruction 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 public schools, the class is offered on Wednesdays 4:30-6:00 p.m. Click the links below to see details specific to each group. You can also contact Dr. Joel Nelson, St. Paul’s Director 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!”
