Confirmation Class

Confirmation is a special time where each youth who has completed 7th grade has the opportunity to carefully reflect on and explore his or her faith. The 8th grade confirmation year is one of discovery and experience. It’s a chance to ask and attempt to answer questions of faith in a relaxed, fun, and safe environment with others who are on the same journey.

Confirmation is an exciting journey in a youth’s faith life and a journey I hope your youth will join us for.

At the end of the Confirmation year

Youth are asked if they are prepared to affirm the baptismal vows made by their parents on their child’s behalf, claiming Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

For youth who are not Baptized

This is an opportunity to make their own profession of faith and be Baptized.

Such involvement includes:

  1. proclaiming the good news
  2. taking part in the common life and worship of a particular church
  3. praying and studying Scripture and the faith of the Christian Church
  4. supporting the work of the church through the gifts of money, time, and talents
  5. participating in the governing responsibilities of the church
  6. demonstrating a new quality of life within and through the church
  7. responding to God’s activity in the world through service to others

Grow in Faith Sunday School

High School

This class helps youth grow in faith and further their Biblical knowledge, and it challenges them to put their faith into action. The class format includes Bible study, discussion, and small group interaction. 
 
Students are invited to grab a seat and get comfy as they discuss how the lectionary text for the day connects to their daily life, constantly asking and answering the question of how God and their faith guide them in the midst of high school stress and excitement. The floor is always open for honest conversation and communal prayer, led by teachers who have a passion for working with emerging adults.
 

Age:
9th – 12th Grade

Location:
Youth Wing 3 – Lower Level

Time:
9:45 Sunday School Hour
