Confirmation at Bethesda is a unique time in a student's life when they study and are instructed in the Word of God in a directed and semi-comprehensive manner that many will never experience again. Confirmation is neither just a rite of passage, nor a free pass into heaven. It is not merely instruction in what to do in order to be a "good Christian" but rather is an opportunity to discover what God has done at Calvary for us. It is our hope that through confirmation each student "Confirms" what God has done for them and that throughout the process they find themselves trusting God and all of His promises. We believe that God works through His Word to accomplish this, and His Word is heard more clearly as we as teachers and parents partner together toward this end.

Here at Bethesda we have 2 years of Confirmation in 7th grade and 8th grade.  

We study Luther's Small Catechism which includes:

  • The 10 Commandments,
  • The Lord's Prayer,
  • The Apostle's Creed,
  • The Sacraments of Baptism and Communion.
