Sundays at 9:30-10:15 am. in the Youth Room
Confirmation is a period of faith formation that follows and builds on what students already know. It is a period of preparation for becoming full, adult, voting members of the congregation. In confirmation students are encouraged and guided and given the tools to start thinking about faith as a verb, as something that is done, not just on Sunday morning at worship, or just in the church building, or just on church activities, but as a vital component of a person’s life, permeating and coloring everything they see and say and do.
