Christ Lutheran offers confirmation classes
Registration is open for confirmation classes for teenagers 7th grade and up at Christ Lutheran Church in Superior. Classes run 3:30-5:30 p.m. every Wednesday starting Sept. 10.
Christ Lutheran has developed a program for passing on the Christian faith to young teens. Christ Lutheran uses a cradle to the grave, head to the heart process that provides opportunities for parents to participate in the learning process with their children.
Confirmation classes are for children baptized in the Christian faith or who would like to be baptized. The goal is to prepare each child for life by helping them grow their relationship with Jesus Christ and His church. Confirmation is a rite of the church, which declares of a catechumen: “Here is a Christian — he/she has been baptized, confesses the faith, and is in communion with Christ and His church.” Prayer of the church and a blessing from the word of God typically accompanies the rite.
Confirmation classes take an exciting look at what the Bible says about life with God. Children learn what God says about Himself, baptism, Holy Communion, the Christian church, sin and guilt, forgiveness, the purpose of life and the end of the world. Teens discover God’s expectations toward worship, parents, suicide, marriage, money, drugs and more, and youth learn how God’s grace in Jesus Christ sets us free when we fail to meet those divine expectations. Any child is welcome.
Sunday Divine Services for the entire family are offered at Christ Lutheran at 9 a.m. through Labor Day Weekend. Starting Sept. 7 services begin at 8 and 10:30 a.m. with a Family Christian Education Hour at 9 a.m. A Wednesday evening service is offered year-round at 6:30 p.m.
Christ Lutheran Church is east of the Mariner Mall at 320 N. 28th St. E., Superior. Call (715) 398-3680 to register or for information about confirmation classes.
