Registration for this year’s confirmation program is now open! [PDF] Join us to learn about faith and life in church.
Coming up: We will welcome our new group of Confirmands during the English-German worship service on Sunday, September 27. Our first confirmation class will happen on October 17 and next on November 14.
For more information check out our “Confirmation” webpage.
The confirmation course lasts one year and ends with Confirmation on May 21, 2021 – Pentecost Sunday. The program is aimed at young people who will be in grade 7 after the summer holidays or who are 12 to 15 years old (exceptions are possible in consultation). The course will be taught in English and German, based on the language ability of confirmands.
The confirmands normally meet once a month at Martin Luther Church from Saturday afternoon until noon Sunday. Due to public health restrictions during the pandemic we will be meeting on Saturday afternoons, sleeping at home, and then attending worship on Sunday. Depending on current public health advisories, we may try to have weekend retreats again in the spring.
For questions and to register, please contact Vicar Silke Fahl, vicarfahl@martinluther.
Our 2019-2020 Confirmands have been patiently waiting for their Confirmation. It is finally scheduled to take place in October. Closer to the date, we will share whether the worship service will be open to the public.
One of our Confirmands shares his experience during this time:
Confirmation is an important part in one’s life. This is when one confirms one’s faith in God at church. For such an important thing I certainly wish it was different. The first half was very fun because we were still able to go to the church and see each other and even go on retreats. But when the Corona-pandemic happened, that sadly put an end to that. We did still have online classes via Zoom which were still fun but I would have preferred the physical classes. It was still very nice during the pandemic as it gave us something to do. But as the classes are over now we just have the test and the confirmation itself. I hope that it can happen when the pandemic is over while Vicar Jordan is still part of our church! Until then, we can only pray that will happen…
