Confirmation 2020-2021

Register here

This year there are two (2) confirmation dates and two (2) confirmation tracks. Please see below to determine which track your student should be on. 

What is confirmation? Confirmation is the chance for young people to proclaim their faith in Jesus Christ as their own. At CCL, students can participate in confirmation starting in 6th grade. 5th/6th grade youth group covers a majority of the material, focusing on Basics of the Faith. That material is supplemented with two (2) half-day parent-student retreats: Communion Retreat & Apostle's Creed Retreat. Following the Communion Retreat, students will be instructed in the practice of partaking in their First Communion. The Apostle's Creed Retreat summarizes all that the students have learned and turns the attention to the Rite of Confirmation. 

Track 1:

  • My student started confirmation last year, but has not been confirmed (this means your student has already completed the Communion Retreat and/or regular instruction)
  • Your student can choose to follow either the Fall Schedule or the Spring Schedule
  •  If you chose the Spring Schedule, you do not need to do the Communion Retreat again.

Track 2:

  • My student is starting confirmation this year
  • Your student will follow the Spring Schedule

Expectations for all students:

  • It is expected that a parent will attend each half-day retreat with their student. 
  • Regular Church Attendance: Either in-person or worshipping online
  • Regular Youth Group Participation
  • "What is Faith in Jesus" Project
  • Purchasing a Luther's Small Catechism (optional, but encouraged)
