Confirmation


Confirmation 2019-2020

Our Confirmation program for 6thgrade students consists of classes on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings, field trips, and retreats.  Parents/guardians, mentors, staff, and volunteers all contribute to the success of our program.  We strive to give our students an overview of the Bible, United Methodist history and theology, and safe space to question and develop an understanding of the faith so that they may begin to profess and live out their faith.

 

Orientation will be Sunday, August 18 @ 9:30 am in room 205 in the Christian Life Center for parents/guardians and students.

 

Confirmation includes:

 

Collaborate Bible Study on Sundays at 9:30 am that will cover the Old and New Testaments

 

Tween Time on Wednesdays in the Fall semester from 6:00 – 7:00 pm.  It will consist of fun games and an informative understanding of the overreaching themes of the Bible for confirmand students.

 

Collaborate Methodist Confirmation on Wednesdays in the Spring Semester from 6:00 – 7:00 pm.  Parents and students will both be required to attend. 

 

Mentors will work with confirmands on an individual basis.  Each mentor will walk alongside each student to encourage faith conversations after Confirmation is complete.

 

Retreats and Field Trips are interspersed throughout the year for both students and parents/guardians.
