Confirmation 2019

     

         Our 2019 Confirmation Program will begin with an Orientation / Kick-Off Meeting for students, parents and mentors on Friday, September 6th at 7pm in the Youth Room.  Confirmation classes begin Sunday, September 15th (10-10:50am) and are 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 learn 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 in Christ as they navigate the challenging waters of today's world.  

         If you would like to participate, please register online by August 25th. You will be contacted with more information after that date. If you have questions or need additional information please contact Marlene at marlene@lynnhaven.church.

    Read more about what it means to be a mentor and what your commitment will be. And thank you for serving this way. Every one of us needs someone to be an encourager and role model in our life and faith. Your student has chosen you, and we believe that God has uniquely positioned you for this exciting opportunity to disciple a young person.
