All Lutherans love their programs of Youth Confirmation! "Confirmation" means strengthening. So Youth Confirmation is simply a program of strengthening our youth in their faith and in their obedience to Gods' commands. When the Program is final, after four years of Bible Lessons, there is a time when the Pastor questions the youth in church in front of the assembled congregation. This is sort of like a test. If the young people demonstrate sufficient growth in Christian faith, can repent of their sins, and know the meaning of the Sacrament of Holy Communion, they are then welcomed to receive Communion regularly and participate in other more-advanced-activities in the church.
