The journey of faith is a life-long process. It's not something we graduate from or complete. Throughout that journey are milestones where we recognize and respond to the saving grace of Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit that equips us for the journey. Confirmation is one of those significant milestones. When students are confirmed, they profess their faith in Jesus Christ and commit to continuitng to grow in that faith for the rest of their lives.
Students 6th through 12th grade are eligible for confirmation. To prepare, students meet in weekly groups for several months. Groups usually begin in January. We seek to provide an atmosphere of listening, support, and encouragement. We want students to know that their faith journey and their story are truly unique. Both have tremendous importance. We try to keep class sizes small to encourage relationship-building and learning.
