Our 6th grade classes are very important to us! Beginning in the fall they launch into a year long confirmation process. Our 2020-2021 class will begin Wednesday, Sept. 9 at 6 p.m. in the Confirmation Classroom.

Confirmation preparation (confirmation) is a formal process with a class or group leading to the ritual of confirmation for those who wish to receive it and are deemed ready by the pastors. The middle school years are a time when young people begin to move from concrete thinking to abstract thinking and many begin to make lifelong faith decisions. During these middle school years youth are seeking a sense of belonging. Belonging to the community of faith is an appropriate response to that developmental task. We believe that around the 6th grade is an appropriate time to consider this task.

Confirmation preparation takes place over the school year and our pastors joining in at different times by delivering lessons, meeting with the confirmands individually, and attending confirmation retreat. It is a great time of learning and relationship building culminating with Confirmation Sunday!
