Confirmation is a public rite of the church, for which students have spent time in instruction, designed to help them identify with the life and mission of the Christian Church.
The Rite of Confirmation provides an opportunity for the individual Christian, relying on God’s promise given in Holy Baptism, to make a personal public profession of the faith and a lifelong pledge of faithfulness to Christ. This is a time where a child is entrusted to make his own choice with regard to his faith, and symbolizes a transition from that decision being made by his/her parents or godparents.
At Messiah Lutheran, candidates for confirmation receive weekly, (generally weekday), instruction during 7th and 8th grade that is designed to educate them prior to their confirmation declaration in early summer of 8th grade.
If you would like your child to receive instruction for confirmation, please call the church office at 718-356-1050. The form for confirmation instruction is located Here.
