Twelve Young People Affirm Their Baptism

By October 29, 2018 High School, Learn, News
Affirmation of Baptism is a special rite in our church to celebrate and affirm the ongoing work of the Holy Spirit in the life of a group of young people that began in their baptism.
In baptism, we are known and claimed by God as beloved children. We are surrounded in prayers, promises and a community to help us grow in faith as our disciple identity develops. Affirmation of Baptism, also known as Confirmation, follows a period of preparation – studying and discussing the Sriptures and the foundations of Christian faith from a Lutheran perspective, praying and developing relationships with one another.
Yesterday’s Affirmation of Baptism at First Lutheran was a rite of passage for 12 young people in the next stage of their lifelong learning. From this day forward, they take responsibility for their continued discipleship and faith formation. We are grateful for the teachers, mentors, families and friends who have walked with them to this point. We thank God for this special opportunity to affirm our congregational support and accompany them on the next leg of their faith journey.
