Confirmation at Holy Cross Lutheran Church and Immanuel Lutheran Church is a two year instruction period which begins in seventh grade. During these two years, our catechumens learn the basics of the Christian faith as taught in Holy Scripture and Luther’s Small Catechism. Specific emphasis is given to the Old and New Testaments, the Ten Commandments, the Apostles’ Creed, the Lord’s Prayer, Baptism, Holy Communion, Confession and Absolution, and what it means to be Lutheran. At the end of this period of instruction the catechumens are examined, absolved, and admitted to the Lord’s Table according to our Lord’s Word. (1 Corinthians 11:28)
Confirmation classes are offered on Wednesday evenings. The eighth grade meets on Wednesday evenings from 3:45 pm until 4:45 pm The seventh grade meets on Wednesday evenings from 4:45 pm until 5:45 pm.
“These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.”
