Confirmation in the United Methodist Church is a sacred occasion. It is a worship service where our young people publicly accept the salvation offered by Christ. During the confirmation service, young people claim their love of God through Jesus Christ in their life as they become members of the church.
We believe that young people should know what they are saying in this ceremony, what it means to be a member of the church, and what it means to be a disciple and a growing Christian. For this reason we offer confirmation classes for students to experience and grow in their faith. It is a time of intentional preparation. During confirmation class, confirmands learn about the meaning of Christian faith; the history and teachings of the United Methodist Church and an explanation of the baptismal and membership vows they will be professing.
We would like to invite our 6th graders and our 7th-12th graders who have not been previously confirmed to make a significant step in the journey of faith and join a Confirmation class this year.
Two separate confirmation Classes are held each year – one in the fall and one in the spring. Traditionally, the fall class is primarily 6th graders, although 7th-12th graders are certainly welcome to attend. The spring class is traditionally smaller and has mixed ages.
Which class should you choose?
Attendance is required at all classes. Some make ups will be permitted, however, if you already know that you will miss two or more classes in the fall schedule, you may want to wait until the spring class.
Fall Confirmation 2017
We will have a Confirmation Orientation meeting for this year’s Fall class on August 27 at 4:00 pm in the Youth Center. Fall Confirmation classes will begin September 10. The Confirmation students will participate in all confirmation classes on Sunday mornings. Confirmation will meet at 9:39 am in the Youth Center. Confirmation Sunday will be November 12 at the 8:30 Service. A brunch will follow for the confirmand and their guests.
Thi is a great time to join one of our Youth small groups! Our prayer is that these groups will bring a powerful time of deeper fellowship, stronger accountability and big breakthroughs for our youth!
