In many Lutheran 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 26th we will celebrate confirmation with Alexander Skold, Jake Rand, Jack Messerli, Nicolas Amann, Maddie Rondestvedt, Allison and Kiera Sundeen and our 9:30 worship service. The Isles Ensemble will accompany the LOTI choir on a cantata based on Luther’s hymn “Lord, Keep Us Steadfast in Your Word” by Dietrich Buxtehude.
