Confirmation

Nurturing the faith and knowledge, joy and hope, service and character of our young people in Christ Jesus is what we’re all about – and doing it together.

Our Confirmation Program

Confirmation is a 3-year process in our congregation and involves experiential learning, retreats, lessons, fellowship, and service in the congregation and community.  Youth are expected to regularly participate in worship.  Youth learn and practice the Christian faith and have the opportunity of making affirmation of their baptism at the end of the three years.  If you are interested in Advent’s Confirmation program and would like more information, please contact the pastor at 408-779-3551.

Learning

Confirmation has a 3-year rotating learning focus:

  • Bible – Old Testament
  • Bible – New Testament
  • Luther’s Small Catechism (Ten Commandments, Apostles’ Creed, Lord’s Prayer, Baptism, Communion, Confession, Morning and Evening Prayer)

Whatever the focus, all of these are brought into learning each year.  as all the time. In 2019-2020, our focus is Bible – Old Testament.
