Introducing our 6th graders to the basic beliefs of Christianity.
Confirmation. All 6th graders are invited to join our Confirmation Class. Confirmation is a unique opportunity . . . a call for young people to learn what it means to be a follower of Christ. The year includes an age-appropriate, interactive overview of the Christian faith including Scripture, history and heritage, practices, beliefs, and commitments as United Methodist Christians. Classes meet Sunday nights from 6-8 p.m. from September-March. If your student missed 6th grade confirmation, all is not lost! Periodically, we offer a shortened “AP version” of the course for older students.
All sixth graders are encouraged to participate in Confirmation on Sunday nights from 6-8 p.m. (during the school year). The purpose of Confirmation is to introduce sixth graders to the basic beliefs of Christian faith: Baptism, Holy Communion, Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, the history of the Christian church, and the history of the United Methodist Church. The 32-week class is designed to help students strengthen their faith, build Christian community and equip them with the knowledge as they make decisions about their faith. In baptism, we recognize God’s claim on our lives. In Confirmation, students have an opportunity to claim the relationship God freely offers them and become full adult members of the United Methodist Church.
Confirmation is not simply a “rite of passage,” nor just a class to complete. It is a step in a life-long journey of pursuing the heights, depths and widths of God’s love and making a vow to live in relationship with Christ for the rest of your life!
