All youth in Grade 7 or above who have not been confirmed are invited to join Confirmation Class.
CONFIRMATION INFO MEETING
Confirmands and their parents and mentors are encouraged to attend a brief meeting Sunday, January 20 (originally scheduled for Jan. 13 and moved because of snow!), 11:45 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. in Heavener Hall. 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. Please contact Meg Baker at firstname.lastname@example.org or 301-933-7933 ext. 104 for more information.
Confirmation Class kicks off with a weekend retreat at Camp Manidokan, January 25-27. This overnight retreat in the mountains near Harper's Ferry WV costs $65. This retreat is for ALL regardless of a family's financial situation - financial aid is available! Contact Meg Baker or Micah Smartt (email@example.com, 301-933-7933 ext 111) to confidentially discuss your needs one-on-one.
The Confirmation Class will meet on Fridays from 6:30-8:00 p.m. during the Spring semester. There is also a pre-confirmation rehearsal on Saturday, June 8.
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/sponsor.
JOINING THE CHURCH
Participants who complete confirmation classes and choose to become full church members will be received into membership during the 10:30 a.m. worship service on Sunday, June 9.
