Confirmation Class

Confirmation is a journey of Christian formation and transformation, learned and lived out over the period of a school year. Beginning in September, we guide eighth graders through the Christian story in confirmation class. On Tuesday afternoons and Sunday mornings they work together with lessons, games, activities, and trips to learn the history of our church, examine the stories of the Bible, and explore world religions while serving others and the church. Each confirmand will write a personal statement of faith that is read by the deacons and discussed individually with each confirmand over a shared dinner. The dinner takes place each year in May, with Confirmation Sunday following shortly thereafter.

Every Confirmation Class will need to meet a number of well-established expectations in order to fully enrich their participation and journey. A list of these expectations can be found here.
