Make Your Faith Your Own
Confirmation occurs during the 7th and 8th grade years in school. The Confirmation program helps 7th and 8th graders learn more about the bible and their faith while forming important relationships with their peers, pastors, and youth staff and mentors. Along the way, students not only learn about their faith, but make it their own. Confirmation includes weekly meetings, guided by pastors, youth staff, and confirmation mentors, as well as several retreat and camping experiences. Students celebrate their affirmation of baptism in September of their 9th grade school year.
