Confirmation

 

Confirmation, which is now commonly called Affirmation of Baptism, is the time when young people declare for themselves that they will live out the promises made for them by their parents and sponsors in their baptism (that is, of course, assuming that they were baptized as an infant). The years spent in confirmation classes are intended to continue, more intentionally, the exploration of faith, faith and life, and faith and the church so that students can make that affirmation of baptism statement of faith in the hope and trust that God will continue to lead and guide them in all the aspects of their lives now and in the future. - See more at: http://www.elca.org/en/Living-Lutheran/Prayer-Ventures/2014/08/140811-What-is-confirmation?_ga=1.197962991.1924865192.1413324467#sthash.TczzQXMQ.dpu

At Salem, we begin Confirmation Classes when youth enter the 7th grade. 

Classes are two years long and take place during the school year.

We use a curriculum called "Re:Form" (which you can learn more about by clicking on the banner to the side) and study the Bible, the Creeds, the Lord's Prayer as well as other related topics. 

Classes last 1 hour, from 6:30 to 7:30pm.  If you have any question, or would like to learn more, please contact the church office.
