Affirmation of Baptism
In the Lutheran church, people of all ages are baptized, however, we most often baptize infants. This is a beautiful picture of God’s extravagant grace that reaches out to us: names us, claims us and makes us God’s own children in the global family of faith. In infant baptism, parents and sponsors (Godparents) promise to raise their children in the Christian faith. Affirmation of Baptism is the student’s opportunity and privilege to take on those promises made at their baptism, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, live them in their daily lives.
Who can participate in Affirmation of Baptism?
Anyone who is in grades 6 - 12. In general this is a three year course of study.
