All Saints' 5th graders participate in a confirmation class every spring in preparation for their move into Middle School and Youth Group.
Confirmation classes are something that the Church has utilized for centuries to instruct children in the relationship they have with God and God’s people based upon their baptisms. These classes are designed to clearly and accessibly explain to Christian children who the God with whom they are in relationship with is and what He has done for them in and through the person and work of Jesus… i.e. what it means that they belong to Him through baptism and faith. They have been baptized (most of them – if they haven’t, this would be a great time to do so) and this is a time of great importance for laying hold of Christ with an informed and personal faith that is not simply the faith of their parents but their faith as well.
