Confirmation is the period of the Christian life for teenagers when they learn more about Jesus, the Bible and our Catechism, preparing especially to start receiving Holy Communion. It happens in the span of two years, from October to May. At the end of the period of studies, a Confirmation Sunday Service is held in early June, where confirmands confirm publicly their Baptismal faith and start to receive the Sacrament of Holy Communion. Confirmation Sunday happens on the first Sunday of June.
Our Confirmation Classes at Hope happen in two ways:
–Online Lessons – Pastor Lucas sends a weekly email to 1st and 2nd Year Confirmands with a the topic of the week and an activity.
–Confirmation Retreats – Our confirmands join students from other Lutheran Churches in the area for 6 annual two-day retreats (7pm Friday – after lunch Saturday). They learn, share and have fellowship. Six themes are covered: Books of Moses; History, Prophets, Poetry and Wisdom; Jesus’ birth and Ministry; Jesus’ Death and Resurrection, Acts; Epistles. The next retreat will be January 19-20, 2024 at Faith Lutheran, Surrey.
