The Confirmation Classes at Christ Lutheran begin in the 5th grade and conclude in the 8th grade. The 7th and 8th grade classes are required for Confirming the Faith and First Communion. In the first two years, the classes review the main teachings of the Old and New Testaments. In the 7th and 8th grade levels, the classes study the six chief parts of the Lutheran catechism: Ten Commandments, Apostles’ Creed, Lord’s Prayer, Sacrament of Baptism, Office of the Keys and Confession and the Sacrament of Holy Communion. The 8th Graders also participate in a special Confirmation retreat in the fall. The Rite of Confirmation is celebrated on the third Sunday of May. Our teachers seek to help the student grow closer to God through faith in Jesus Christ and to one another in faith.
