Confirmation has been around in Lutheran Churches for a long time, but it is important for us to stop and think about what it is before we begin. Confirmation is more than a class, it is more than a two year program. It is a ministry of Shepherd of the Hills through which God is active in your life. Confirmation can help you to feel more at home in the church and teach you ways to be active. It can strengthen your confession of faith and make you bold in that knowledge and confession.

Confirmation teaches you about the promises that God has made to you and how you can depend on those promises. At the end of the Confirmation, you will have a deeper, more personal, and honest idea about what you believe and who God is. You will also learn how to live out that faith in the church and world.

We study scripture, Baptism, Communion, and the teachings of the Bible. We learn through our actions as well as through worship and acts of service for others. You have the chance to talk about what you are learning about your faith at home with your parents and at church with your pastors, and each other. At the end of all these classes you will stand before the church and make a statement of faith that is an acknowledgement of what you believe.

Confirmation is part of lifelong a journey of faith, filled with new questions and answers, new discoveries, new relationships, new responsibilities, and new possibilities. God is with you each step of the way. Confirmation is not the end, nor the beginning of faith. Rather, Confirmation is a tool that helps you throughout your life to confess your Christian faith.
