At Prince of Peace we believe most children are ready to take ownership of their faith in approximately seventh or eighth grade.
The Lord himself will lead you and be with you. He will not fail you or abandon you, so do not lose courage or be afraid.
By this age students are able to:
understand biblical truths for themselves,
learn Lutheran teachings,
stand up publicly to say, "This is what I believe."
How to confirm your faith:
Attend a 6-week student-parent Getting to Know Jesus class. Students attend this class with their parents because home is where you put what you’ve learned into action, and have deeper conversations based on your shared experience in class. Students desiring to confirm their faith will also attend a confirmation retreat in April. When the parent and student agree that they are ready to confirm their faith, the student is invited to participate in the Rite of Confirmation during a designated worship celebration in April.
The teaching and fellowship of the Getting to Know Jesus class are greatly enhanced by participation in IGNITE.
