Confirmation, or the Affirmation of Baptism, is made by students taking on for themselves the promises made for them in their baptism. In preparation for this, students spend time learning about their faith by attending classes, going on faith-based field trips, and participating in the worship and life of the church.
The pastor teaches weekly Confirmation classes during the academic year, beginning with an introduction to Confirmation the Sunday following Labor Day. A schedule for Confirmation classes, including holidays and breaks, is provided to all students and their families during this introductory class. Students and families also participate in the congregation by serving as worship assistants, providing coffee hours, and attending Confirmation events and activities.
Students typically begin the two-year Confirmation Program at the start of their 7th Grade year. If you have any questions about the Confirmation Program, please get in touch with the church office.
