“Be Opened” at Hephatha Lutheran Church.

Lutheran Confirmation Letter

We are very excited to begin another year of Confirmation. The Lutheran Confirmation experience is a time when your child can grow in their faith and, at the end of the two years, have a chance to publicly “confirm” their faith as a follower of Jesus Christ and their desire to become a member of the church, which will happen on Palm Sunday during our 10:15 am service, with First Communion at the Maundy Thursday service.

Lutheran Confirmation is a fun, interactive, faith development process that happens over two years during middle school. The goals of Confirmation classes are two-fold: head knowledge and heart application. It is expected that during these two years of commitment, a student will trust in Christ as their Lord and Savior. Hephatha will provide the Rite of Confirmation upon successful completion of the program on Palm Sunday. The Rite of Confirmation is not a graduation, but a new beginning to declare a life of following Jesus. For most confirmation students, this is a two-year process happening in their 7th and 8th grade years.

Confirmation and Doctrine Class

All Hephatha Lutheran School 7th and 8th grade students will receive confirmation instruction during doctrine class. After their second year of instruction, these students will have the option to get confirmed during the Rite of Confirmation at the 10:15 am service on Palm Sunday.
