Every year in the life of a child is important. Every step along the way prepares a child for the bigger and, sometimes, more difficult steps that lie ahead in life. Confirmation Class is an important step in assisting parents in preparing their children to live a Christian life and make Christian decisions to the glory of God throughout life.
It is a joyous responsibility of both the pastor and the parents to teach God's Word to these Junior High level students.
Youth Confirmation at Abiding Peace generally involves a two-year course of study that includes Bible stories and a study of what God means when he says, "You shall not..." and "This is my body" and "...born again of water and the Spirit"; and what we mean when we say, "Our Father in heaven" and "What sins should we confess?" and "I believe in God..."
Students who complete the course are encouraged, though not required, to publicly profess their faith in the rite of Confirmation.
