7th & 8th Grade Confirmation
Junior Confirmation for seventh and eighth graders is a public rite
of the Lutheran church which is preceded by a two year period of instruction (September-March).
The purpose of the instruction is to help baptized Christians identify with the
ministry and mission of the church. It is also a way for Christians to learn more
about their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and to develop a more personal relationship
with Him that will last a lifetime. Junior Confirmation should be viewed as a
stepping stone between the beginning of one's faith, which begins for many at
their baptism, and a lifetime of growing in that faith.
students who attend Trinity Lutheran School, instruction takes place on Tuesday
and Thursday mornings as part of their school instruction. Students who attend
public junior high school participate in confirmation on Wednesday evenings.
