One definition of Confirmation is: that which gives new strength or assurance; proof; convincing testimony. Here at Concordia, we strive to engage the students in healthy discussion during Confirmation classes, so that they will indeed have a "convincing testimony" of their belief at the conclusion of these classes. Confirmation is a year-long program of learning and spiritual growth which concludes in a ceremony where each student is recognized for their decision to continue following Christ. In addition, at the conclusion of the Confirmation classes, it is our intent that each confirmed member will continue to serve, grow, witness, worship, and fellowship with other believers.
Confirmation is a milestone year in your child’s walk with Jesus and their life of faith. They will experience unforgettable retreats, phenomenal mentorship, engaging biblical teaching, and so much more. Over the course of the year, students will grow in understanding about what they believe, they will make friends that will last a lifetime, and they will continue to build upon the faith foundation that you as parents have already begun. This program is open to students entering grades 6-8 in the fall of 2016.

We have created a Confirmation program designed for busy High School students with even busier schedules. If your child is in high school and wants to take the next step in their faith, this Fall course is exactly what they need. Through eight Sunday Morning classes and two evening discussions, your student will learn about the faith in a way that engages them as teen-agers.
