Confirmation is the time for youth to pay special attention to their faith at a critical point in their lives. We learn about the most important things in the Bible and in our faith in large groups and build relationships with each other in small groups. We also take field trips to learn about other religions and important life events. 7th & 8th graders participate in confirmation group time on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8:00pm. Youth are confirmed in a special worship service in the fall of their 9th grade year.
Confirmation is open to all 7th and 8th graders for the 2017-2018 school year—friends and family are welcome to join in too! Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more info and/or click on the registration forms and information documents below:
