In many Luth
eran churches the Confirmation worship service is known as the Affirmation of Baptism. The name recalls the promises that were made by the parents and godparents at the time of a child’s baptism. They vowed that the Christian faith would be child’s one day, and that they would speak on behalf of the child until that day comes. The Rite of Affirmation is that coming of age for the young adult. It is also a day for a renewal of the faith through the laying on of hands and the giving of the Holy Spirit.
On Reformation Sunday, October 30th we will celebrate confirmation with Ethan Rand, Stephanie Amann, Kate Mechels and Jorgen Olson.
