Youth Confirmation 2022

Confirmation is a time when a Christian publically “confirms” their intention to live the vows of their baptismal and membership covenant, and becomes a member of the local congregation and The United Methodist Church.  The confirmation process helps students begin to understand what it means to be a fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ, and how to live their faith. Confirmation is a time of intentional preparation and it gives students the opportunity to study the Christian faith.  After completing the class, the students have the opportunity to stand before the congregation and affirm their faith and commitment to Christ.

Who:  8th graders & high schoolers who haven’t taken confirmation.
