Confirmation is important because this program helps students begin to understand what it means to be a fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ. Confirmation is a time of intentional preparation and it gives students the opportunity to study the beliefs of the United Methodist Church. After completing the class, the students have the opportunity to stand before the congregation and affirm their faith and commitment to Centreville United Methodist Church.
