Public school confirmation class begins September 13th!
Since the beginning of the Christian church the practice of confirmation has existed. Then it was a way to ensure against infiltration of their number by government spies looking to kill. Those who wished to become members of the early Christian church needed someone to sponsor them (the beginning of our practice of baptismal sponsors) and would undertake a year-long course of study which culminated on the Vigil of Easter (Easter eve) with their baptism, confirmation, and first communion. Now, we train our children in much the same manner out of reverence for the command of God to make disciples by teaching them to obey everything he has commanded. And just as was the case with the early church, upon completion of this course of confirmation we ask our young adults before God and witnesses if they intend to stay true to the Christian faith as they have come to know it and gladly welcome them into communicant membership!
