Confirmation for Children and Teens

What is Confirmation

  • Confirmation, at First Immanuel Lutheran, is an educational process whereby a baptized Lutheran studies the Lord’s Supper, baptism, and other teachings of the church based on God’s word and expressed in Luther’s Small Catechism. 
  • On Confirmation Day, they will publicly confess that the teachings of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, grounded in the Word of God and expressed in Luther’s Small Catechism,  are correct.  They also commit to being active in worship and receiving the Lord’s Supper at First Immanuel.  

Confirmation on Wednesday Nights for 5th grade and older

  • Night Class Confirmation is designed for 5-8th grade students (extended into high school as needed) to study a 4 year curriculum that teaches:
    • Old Testament

    • 6 Chief Parts of Luther’s Small Catechism
    • Defending and expressing the Christian faith (apologetics), and review of the Sacraments

Local Mission Opportunities

Every Tuesday, groups from FIL help serve meals to men, women and children that come looking for help. We travel as a group from FIL, leaving at 3pm, returning by 6:30 pm. You may be called upon to serve the main meal, desserts, and occasionally help in the kitchen. Close-toes shoes, conservative dress and a willingness to selflessly serve are the only requirements!

The Saukville Community Food Pantry was started with several religious and community organizations to fill a need for food in Ozaukee County.  Assistance is needed on distribution days, stocking and organizing the pantry and delivering donated food collected at FIL and ROL to the pantry.
Refuge House is truly “a place of refuge” where women and children who have no place to  reside as they prepare for the birth of their babies.  The live-in houseparent provides a loving and caring family atmosphere where moms can learn parenting and life-skills, further their education and acquire job skills.  Most importantly, the mothers have the opportunity for regular Bible study, prayer and worship so they can grow in their walk with the Lord. Many opportunities are available at the home and the Blessed Again Resale Store that supports this ministry.

 Past Missions

Feed My Starving Children 

We partnered with Concordia University Wisconsin, along with many other churches in the area to raise money and pack meals for malnourished children around the world. We packed just under 400,000 meals!


Fighana kidsrst Immanuel hosted a short-term mission to Ghana January 9 – 20, 2017. This was the third time we have visited this wonderful country to work side by side with Pastor Solomono Salam Ayagri, his family, and other church workers to reach more Ghanaians with the saving message of Jesus Christ. Our work included Gospel outreach to children and adults, malaria net distribution to remote villages, and some light construction work.  



The focus of the short-term mission trips to Guatemala is Gospel outreach, children’s ministry, other additional work including construction projects. Our group worked alongside members of Jesus es El Camino congregation in La Majada, Guatelmala.  This mission trip takes place annually.
Prayer cannot be overestimated! Prayer moves the hand of God. First Immanuel Lutheran Ministries is a family of faith dependent upon prayer and committed to God’s sovereignty. 
If you have a prayer request you can submit it below on our prayer wall. A group of volunteers will lift up these prayers throughout the week.

My father was diagnosed with cancer. His overall health is not good to begin with. My friend, Ellie is experiencing a decline in health as well. Prayers for comfort and peace for both of them.

My little sister (junior in high school) went back to mental rehabilitation hospital last night for the second time in two years after a suicide attempt. We are not able to visit her due to COVID restrictions and is limited to 2 phone calls a day. Please pray not only for her healing, but that my parents would have the strength and wisdom to guide her and that we would find doctors who are able to help her complete her healing totally; also that she would be able to pick back up in school and understand the material that she will miss while in the hospital. My little sister is not a Christian and does not know the peace of God during this hard time.

Pray that all may go well with the opening of our schools and that students, teachers and staff stay healthy so that school can stay in session. Pray against anxiety of the students and teachers going back in this new environment.
