Too often confirmation has been downgraded to the role of a checkpoint along the faith journey. The Confirm program reclaims confirmation as the first step on a journey that leads to a mature, adult faith. Confirm treats confirmation as more than a decision. Instead, it is the beginning of a conversation about what it means to be a Christian, living out your faith, your commitment, and God’s call.
With flexible and easy-to-understand materials, Confirm provides students with the basic beliefs of a theologically sound, United Methodist faith while engaging them in creative and thought-provoking activities to help them internalize what they’ve learned. Confirm also embraces the importance of community in the journey of faith development.
What to Expect?
Confirmation meets every Wednesday, beginning September 13. Junior and senior high students who have not been confirmed are welcome to attend confirmation, regardless of grade level. Pastor Matt will be leading confirmation along with a parent co-leader.

RISE youth group/Confirmation 7:00-8:30 pm
