Confirmation Ministry at Abundant Life
Confirmation is all about growing—in understanding and in faith—by God’s grace. It’s a time when young people add their “yes” to the promises made by their parents/caregivers and sponsors at their baptism. ALL is committed to providing both educational and faith-affirming activities for students in this Longer and Later Confirmation Program.

While we are normally talking about youth being confirmed, adults may also enter a period of study after which they would affirm their faith in the public setting of a worship service.

Orientation to the Longer-Later Confirmation Program
Grade 3             Distribution of Bibles (September)
Grade 4             Visit from Pastor in the spring, with material for personal/family spiritual formation—Bible reading, discussion, prayer.
Grade 5             Module on Holy Communion; acolyte orientation
Grade 6             Module on Holy Baptism
Grade 7             2 Modules—Prayer; 10 Commandments
Grade 8             2 Modules on the Hebrew Scriptures
Grade 9             2 Modules on the Newer Testament
Grade 10   2 Modules--Creed; Lutheran Heritage
Grade 11   Mentors; Affirmation of Baptism

Between grades 7-9, students are expected to attend Confirmation Camp at least once (several area congregations coming together). These have normally been held at Luther Village (near Kenora, ON).
7th Graders are invited to join the youth group (Gr 7-12) for opportunities to deepen faith through learning, service, leadership development and fun. At least a couple of times a year ALL has a youth-led service, although youth are encouraged to serve according to their gifts and interests at any time.

The Affirmation of Baptism service (Confirmation) usually takes place in the Fall, around Reformation or All Saints Sunday.
