If you have questions or needs for family members with regards to confirmation, please contact Pastor Jeff.

Confirmation in the Lutheran Church is a public profession of faith prepared for by long and careful instruction. In English, it is called "affirmation of baptism", and is a mature and public reaffirmation of the faith which "marks the completion of the congregation's program of confirmation ministry".

Phoenix Lutheran Youth Ministry is a ministry that offers various events (online and in-person) for Lutheran high school youth.  CELC is a member and supporter.

From the PhLY web site (


"The mission of PhLY is to shepherd the identities of High School youth as children of God, loved by Jesus and saved by grace through the vision of connecting local congregations to one another, sharing resources, and encouraging the youth to meet with other area youth."

PhLY is an addition to the High School youth ministry already happening in congregations by providing an opportunity for High School youth from all over the Phoenix area to come together for a night of fun, food, and faith. "
