CONFIRMATION

What is Confirmation?

Starting in sixth grade, students participate in confirmation classes during the weekly Sunday School time. The confirmation curriculum articulates the key beliefs of the Christian faith speaking from the United Methodist tradition. It is designed to help young people develop a deeper knowledge of the God who loves them and who also calls them to respond.

Who Do We Confirm?

Confirmation classes span three years so that 6th-8th grade students gain a deep understanding of both the teachings of the United Methodist Church as well as the covenant they commit to upon being confirmed.

We offer other confirmation classes on occasion separate from the three-year program for interested high school children or adults.
