Confirmation classes will be offered for any student in grades 6-12 who are interested in joining our congregation and church as a full adult member. The classes will be offered on Sunday evenings during the same time as our normal youth ministry programming. These classes will be held in Helms Hall and will be taught by our clergy.
On February 12 at 6:30 p.m. in the Sanctuary prospective confirmation students and their parents are invited to an Introduction to Confirmation class where we will explain the process of confirmation and have a special time to get to know our pastors and church staff. The classes will then follow each Sunday until our service in the evening of Palm Sunday. The church has traditionally set the season of Lent as a time of preparation for students who wish to be confirmed so they may worship as members on Easter Sunday. Our special confirmation service on Palm Sunday will surely be a powerful evening and we are delighted to be joined by our Bishop, Paul Leeland!
Those who plan to attend confirmation are encouraged to mark your calendars! We have made every effort to be respectful of busy schedules and we would very much appreciate those participating to make that participation, and attendance, a priority.
Please note: Students who have participated in the classes will be offered the opportunity to join the church through either a special service on the evening of Palm Sunday or at a Sunday morning service of their choice. We realize that Palm Sunday is during Spring Break for many this year. Students who cannot attend the Palm Sunday service will be able to make their confirmation at any Sunday morning service they choose. We will make these arrangements at our first meeting.
