Confirmation

Confirmation

Confirmation is meaningful to our life in Christ when youth, parents, pastors, staff, and all members of the congregation actively participate. Students begin Confirmation in 6th grade and are confirmed in October of their 9th grade year.
What an exciting gift to live in Christ together as a community of faith-we are blessed to be part of your child’s faith journey! 

Class times are indicated below. Worship services continue to meet at 6:30 pm every Wednesday. 6th grade youth are welcome in the Youth Room between class time and worship.

6th Grade/Class of 2025 meets from 4:40-5:20

7th Grade/Class of 2024 meets from 5:30-6:20

8th Grade/Class of 2023 meets from 7:20-8:10

Confirmation meets Wednesday nights, not including holidays or breaks from school. Parents are asked to sign up as Table Leaders with each lesson (see links below).

Please Contact Ashley or Pastor Bob with any Questions.

Updated 2019 Schedule



9th Grade Confirmation:

9th Grade is an important year for our Confirmation youth. After three year together, we call upon our youth to affirm their faith and baptism. Without the weekly lessons, we ask our 9th Grade youth to join High School Youth in the Youth Room Wednesdays after 6:30 Worship.

As we walk through this process together, we ask our 9th grade youth to consider what they’ve learned, and how they plan to move forward in living out their faith. Please review the items below to see what is expected in your 9th grade year, and prepare for this exciting time in your Confirmation journey!

Confirmation Day Form
  It is very important that families fill out our Confirmation Day Form in a timely fashion, so worship services can be planned and robes can be prepared. Please take a moment to fill out this quick form to let us know which worship you’ll be attending and what size robe your Confirmand will need.
