Each year, youth in Grade 7 or above who have not been confirmed are invited to join Confirmation Class.
Confirmation is a serious commitment requiring regular attendance, study, service, and participation in worship. Classes introduce important concepts about our faith, church history, and our membership vows. Each confirmand will also be assigned a member of the congregation to serve as a mentor.
JOINING THE CHURCH
Participants who completed confirmation classes and chose to become full church members will be received into membership during the 10:30 a.m. worship service on Sunday, May 31, 2020.
2020 INFORMATION SESSION
Confirmands, their parents, and mentors are encouraged to attend a brief meeting Sunday, January 12, 11:45 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. in the Multipurpose Room. This informational meeting will provide an opportunity for fellowship, an overview of the Confirmation journey ahead, and a forum for any questions participants may have. For those who are unable to attend, a summary of material covered will be available to you.
Confirmation Class kicks off with a weekend retreat at West River, January 24-26, 2020. This overnight retreat at the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay costs $65. This retreat is for everyone regardless of a family's situation – transportation from St. Paul's is provided and financial aid is available.
