Confirmation

Confirmation ministry is a pastoral and education ministry of the church that helps the baptized through Word and Sacrament to identify more deeply with the Christian community and participate more fully in its mission. 

Confirmation
  • flows from baptism
  • is the responsibility of the entire congregation
  • involves a variety of people and approaches
  • benefits young people best when there are a variety of models and learning

The confirmation program is built around these elements:

  • Bible study
  • Worship attendance
  • Service Opportunities
  • Church Camp and retreats
  • Small group discussions on relevant age-appropriate topics
  • Field trips to churches and organizations to learn more about other faiths.
Once the confirmation process is complete, each confirmand makes a public confession of faith and confirms God's action in their lives.  Learning to live one's faith does not end with confirmation, but requires a lifetime of effort and commitment. Confirmation is the end of the beginning.
