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 certain worship services. 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 23, 2021.
Classes will meet 7:00-8:30 p.m. on Tuesdays from February 2 through May 18 (with some breaks in between). We will initially meet using Zoom and then, if public health conditions and the Confirmation families' comfort levels allow, we may move to in-person sessions when it is safe to do so.
Contact Micah Smartt at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Wednesday, January 27.
PLANS FOR THE FUTURE: Confirmation '22
We realize some families may wish to delay confirmation this Spring and consider participating in Confirmation '22. "Confirmation '22" will have a different format. Classes will likely run from September 2021 through May 2022, with either twice-a-month 90-minute sessions or shorter classes weekly. We hope and pray that conditions will allow for more of our "normal" Confirmation events, like a lock-in or retreat.
Please contact Micah Smartt, Youth Pastor, at email@example.com if you have any questions.
