This year Confirmation will be held weekly online. This will help us have the most consistent Confirmation experience while anticipating that a number of students will be quarantined during the school year. We’ll also have a few youth events in-person (outdoors as long as weather allows, for example, s’mores nights in the parking lot), and you should plan to attend some of these.

We will be studying the Lord’s Prayer and the Apostles’ Creed and will take about 15 weeks to cover these.

Our tentative schedule is to meet online on these dates (Wednesday evenings online 6:30-7:30):

October 7, 14, 21, & 28
November 4, 11, & 18
[No Confirmation meetings in December, but plan for some kind of Wednesday evening worship experience during Advent: December 2, 9, & 16]
January 13, 20, & 27
February 3, 10, 17, & 24
March 3

(Our meeting time may change for Feb. 17 & 24 and March 3 because of Lent services.)


9TH & 10TH GRADERS:

Welcome to your final Confirmation year! This year will involve service projects, meetings with a faith mentor, and your capstone project, called the Credo Project. You can view the presentation below that orients you to this Confirmation year.
