Confirmation is a two year period of study, beginning at about an age range of 12 designed to lead the student (the confirmand) to publically affirm their baptism, that is, confirm their faith for themselves. In times past the rite of confirmation marked a person’s passage into adulthood, and even today, the completion of confirmation marks young women and men becoming full voting members of the congregation. Currently Confirmation classes meet Wednesday afternoons from 4 to 5 pm. For information about confirmation, please call Pastor Gaustad at 253-537-0201, ext. 103.
