Confirmation at TLC

The Rite of Confirmation at Tallmadge Lutheran Church provides confirmands the opportunity to make a public confession of a personal and heartfelt faith in the Triune God.  In this ceremony, the confirmand commits him/herself to the Evangelical Lutheran Church,         to the Church’s teaching, and to living a Christian life.
Confirmation Day at Tallmadge Lutheran Church is not considered to be graduation from religious instruction, a completion of Baptism, a bestowing of the Holy Spirit through the laying on of hands, nor reception into “full” church membership.  Confirmation is, instead, a personal confession of faith in the Triune God.
TLC’s confirmation ministry, then, is a program which involves each of the confirmands in Bible and doctrinal teaching, moral training, service to the church, and fellowship with other youth. Our goal is for each confirmand to have a heart-felt faith in Jesus Christ and a commitment to His church.
