Confirmation


Group

Class of 2017


In response to the reality that the modern church has been losing its young people, we began a new model for Confirmation ministry in 2010.

 

Rather than a two or three year weekly preparation for Confirmation, we offer a ministry which provides 3-5 weeks of instruction each year beginning in the 4th grading and lasting through the 12th grade. 

 

4TH - 5TH GRADE

Upper Elementary aged youth meet for four weeks in October and November, with an additional night for Bible Late Night. Parents and mentors alternate taking turns attending classes with students. The material taught is on a two- year rotation. The focus this time around is on the Sacraments.
