Confirmation Ministry

The confirmation ministry for the congregation is a cooperative program with 7 other Lutheran congregations in York. Students in the grades 7, 8, and 9 meet eight consecutive Sunday evenings for a fall term and a winter term over a period of 3 years at one of the participating churches and are jointly led by Pastors from several of the churches.  The mingling of congregations and leaders offers an enriched environment for Bible study and self-awareness as Children of the Church.  The Rite of Confirmation is held in May.

The York Conference Confirmation Program Winter term of our confirmation program resumes on Sunday, February 10, 2019.  The program runs for 8 consecutive Sundays and concludes the last Sunday of March.  The first and second year students are studying Holy Communion.  The third year students will be completing the Apostles’ Creed and Church History.  Sessions begin promptly at 6:00 p.m. and conclude at 8:00 p.m.  Families having students confirmed will want to mark their calendars for the Confirmation Banquet and Student led Evening Prayer on May 18 with confirmation on May 19 at the 10:30 a.m. liturgy.  Information pertaining to the banquet will be mailed to confirmation students next month.

In 2019, we anticipate four students confirming their faith on Confirmation Sunday.  They are:  Ryan Butler, Alexander Hutton, Kaitlyn Seydel, and Sophia Zart.  Please keep these students in prayer as they complete their final session of catechetical instruction.
