In the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS), confirmation – or the public affirmation of baptism and faith – is arrived at after a period of instruction that lasts several years. At Trinity we make a very deliberate effort to be clear that instruction in the faith, prayer, and contemplation of the Scriptures, is part of every Christian’s daily life and does not end with confirmation.
The formal instruction that leads to confirmation for both adults and children is founded in Scripture as well as Martin Luther’s Small Catechism which was designed to clarify Christian doctrine and teach the life of the Church to Christians including:
- How to read the Bible
- A summary of the content of the Bible
- Law and Gospel
- What prayer is and how to pray
- What worship is and how the liturgy comes from the Scriptures
- The Sacraments of Baptism, Absolution, and the Lord’s Supper
- How God calls each of us to various vocations, including, how we bear witness of Christ in the world and why we should do so, and how to live lives of service to our family and neighbors
Catechism study will be led by Pastor Thomas and will take place 2 days per week for Trinity’s Day School children and every other week for an extended period of time for our public school kids not attending Trinity Lutheran School. Confirmation class will consist of Bible Study, Memorization, Sermon Notes Assignments, Discussion of Contemporary Issues, and several experientially focused Field Trips to deepen the students understanding of Christianity and grow in the knowledge of God’s will for their lives.
