We are in the process of planning our 2019 Confirmation Program which is open to all students who will be in middle school (6th-8th grade) in the Fall of 2019.
In Confirmation, students will explore what it means to be a follower of Christ and to be part of a faith community. It's a place to ask questions and get answers from adult leaders and mentors, our Pastor and each other. We'll discover our spiritual gifts, the meaning of the sacraments (Baptism & Communion), the purpose of worship and the Bible, and also a little bit about our United Methodist heritage, among other topics. And it's all done with lots of interaction through games, videos and discussion.
Our hope and prayer is that at the completion of Confirmation, students will be able to claim their faith as their own - to know what they believe and why they believe it. And that it will give them a solid foundation of identity, hope and purpose as they navigate the challenging waters of today's world.
As the first step, we need to know how many students and parents are interested in beginning Confirmation classes in late summer or early fall. If you would like to participate, please complete this online formby July 14th. You will be contacted with more information after that date. If you have questions or need additional information please contact Marlene at firstname.lastname@example.org.
