Confirmation

2017-2018 Confirmation Class Schedule

In Ephesians 4:1 God encourages us to lead a life that’s worthy of the calling to which we been called.  In order for us to make that happen we have to know our calling, and the only way to know that is to listen to to voice of the One who is calling us – Jesus!

Confirmation provides a place where parents and kids come together to sharpen their listening skills, learn to recognize God’s still, small voice, and strengthen and grow their faith through an independent course of study leading to a Personal Statement of Faith and the Rite of Confirmation.

We meet monthly as a whole group, usually on the last Wednesday of each month, other times after Church or during the week we are available for individual or group conversation to help with the Independent Study Units

The Monthly gatherings will happen on (usually – see the schedule) the last Wednesday of each month 6:30-8:00pm, and will include a Meal and Group Building activities! After 10:30am worship on Sundays or other times during the week we can be available to answer questions, provide guidance, direction, and help on any part of the Confirmation Curriculum.

See the schedule below for a list of times and meeting dates.
