First Lutheran Church of Brainerd, MN

 

 Confirmation is a pastoral and educational ministry of the church which helps the baptized child through Word and Sacrament to identify more deeply with the Christian community and participate more fully in it’s mission.

FLC encourages all 6th-8th graders to participate through three years of instruction. In their fourth year, students take up the baton of faith. This will be a year to put your faith into action, completing at least 30 hours of service work throughout the school year. Affirmation of Baptism Service happens in May of the students 9th grade year. Confirmation runs every Wednesday night from 6 pm to 7:30 pm and meets in Koinonia.
