Affirmation of Baptism
What is Affirmation of Baptism?
When we talk about faith, baptism is where we begin as Lutherans. Many youth were baptized when they were young, but not all. In baptism, God claims us and promises to walk with us in faith. Baptism is a lifelong event, and so when we affirm our baptism, we reaffirm the promises made for us by our parents and sponsors at baptism. We acknowledge God’s love, God’s presence, and God’s promise for our lives. At Trinity, Affirmation of Baptism is celebrated after completing the confirmation program.
Confirmation Program 2021-2022
Trinity’s confirmation program begins in grade 6 and leads to Affirmation of Baptism typically in the spring of their 9th grade year. Please know that there is no “deadline,” and youth may take as much time as they need.
Students typically meet for class 2-3 times each month, September-May. Students in grades 6-8 learn in both large and small group settings. 9th grade students will attend class with one consistent parent or adult mentor and will engage in learning and conversation together. Confirmation has a fee of $35 per student.
Grades 6-8 – 1st/3rd/5th Wednesdays: 6:35-7:30 pm
Grades 9+ – 2nd/4th/5th Wednesdays: 6:35-7:30 pm
