Affirmation of Baptism is a special rite in our church to celebrate and affirm the on-going work of the Holy Spirit in the lives of disciples that began in their baptism. In baptism, we are known and claimed by God as beloved children. We are surrounded with prayers, promises and a community to help us grow in faith as our disciple identity develops. For young people, Affirmation of Baptism, also known as Confirmation, follows a period of time of preparation – studying and discussing the Scriptures and the foundations of the Christian faith from a Lutheran perspective, praying and developing relationships with one another.
Six of our 9th graders will affirm their baptism during this Sunday’s 10:45 am worship service as they transition into the next stage of their lifelong learning. Join us in worship on Sunday at 10:45 am and at a congregational breakfast at 9:30 am to offer your support and prayers. There will be a seat waiting for you!
At First Lutheran, we are a community of disciples of Jesus Christ working for the transformation of the world. Throughout our history, we have remained committed to drawing on our Lutheran (ELCA) tradition of using meaningful worship, content-rich learning and warm hospitality to care well for our congregation, the surrounding community and the world.
