​Junior Confirmation

Confirmation is a custom of the church and not a sacrament.  It links the catechumens to their Baptism, celebrates the reception of the Lord's Word among them, and welcomes them to the Lord's Table.  Luther strongly urges in both the Large and Small Catechisms that those who are unwilling to learn, at the very least, the Ten Commandments, the Creed, and the Lord's Prayer, should not be admitted to the Sacrament.  Baptized Christians are admitted to the Sacrament when they have been examined and absolved by their pastor in accordance with the practice outlined in the Augsburg Confession (Article XXV.)
