Confirmation is a very important step in our faith walk. It is a time where we slow down and take a closer look at our faith and our relationship with God. We will explore more about who we are and what each one of us believes in and what Lutheran Christians believe. As your pastor I am going to make Confirmation a painless, fun and Spirit-filled experience.
Confirmation: The Affirmation of our Baptism, or the time where we actually recognize that Jesus is in our hearts and we dedicate our lives to the life and ministry of Jesus Christ. It is the time where we recognize we are “born-again” daily through our baptism into the love and grace that is given to us freely as a gift because of God’s love toward all humankind.
Our confirmation is a two year program that normally begins at the seventh grade level. Our group is very diversified and will have many in depth discussions! If your child is entering the seventh grade or higher and has not begun the confirmation program, I welcome them to grow in this personal and spiritual opportunity beginning this fall.
We focus on the doctrinal and catechism along with the biblical stories. I also feel that worship is an essential aspect of confirmation…in fact worship IS the most important part of affirming our Baptism. Please come to discuss the possibilities!
Please contact Pastor Tony with questions, or if you are interested in having to register your child or children in Confirmation Classes.
The 2016 theme at Campfirmation was “Flesh and Blood,” which told how God connected with us in the form of Jesus. Ten Spirit of Hope confirmation students, were accompanied by two teen counselors and Youth Minister Rusty Shaffer, joining 120 other confirmands from across the Valley.

All of them, wish to thank all the SOH members who helped to underwrite the cost, and the families who drove them there and back, resulting in an amazing opportunity to grow closer to God!
