At Redeemer, we seek to help children grow and mature in their faith as they enter their tween and teen years. Participation is encouraged in confirmation classes for children in grades 6-8 to help them gain knowledge for a grounded faith, acquire skills for personal discipleship, and develop Christ-like attitudes for life.
Our goal for each confirmation student is that they will:
- Personally confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior
- Explore the awesomeness of God and mysteries of faith
- Identify as an integral part of the body of Christ, as a Lutheran and as a member of our congregation
- Regularly participate in public worship and communion, engage in personal and group Bible study, lead a God-pleasing life and offer service to God by serving others
- Grow in their relationships with God, with their confirmation instructors and classmates, with their family and with others in their congregation
Confirmation is a traditional education program within the Lutheran Church. This program allows students to set aside a specific time within their Christian education to explore what it means to be a Lutheran Christian and discover a life-long love of learning about Jesus. Students typically take part in this three-year program during their 6th, 7th, and 8th grade year and conclude this program by taking part in the Rite of Confirmation; a worship service in which they profess their faith as outlined in the Lutheran Confessions.
If your family is interested in participating in our confirmation program, we encourage you to carefully review the information found on this page. Begin by watching the video that suits your needs.
We have one for our families looking to approach confirmation from our church side of ministry, and one for our families approaching confirmation from Springfield Lutheran School.
Please review the PDFs attached below: the program details sheet will provide an overview of our confirmation program and the changes necessary for this year, the schedule will allow families to plan for the coming semester, and finally the registration sheet will allow your family to sign-up for our program!
Please note that we are pushing off the start of our program until October to allow our families to adjust to a new and challenging school year.
