Confirmation Information

2021-2022 Confirmation Registration
Confirmation class is an opportunity for youth (grades 8 and up) to learn more about their Christian faith and United Methodist Heritage. The class invites students to learn more about the commitment to follow Christ as a disciple and allows them to explore whether they feel ready to undertake that life-changing commitment. Every activity and class session is mandatory. Special exceptions for illness or family emergency are allowable on a case by case basis. 
Registration for 2021-2022 is now closed. Registration for 2022-2023 will be opening SOON!
Class Layout
  • Class sessions meet roughly twice monthly from October to May, with time in between sessions for students to interact with their mentors, and with you, as parents, about what they are learning in class. 
  • On days when class is scheduled, the experience will include both class and worship, alternating between the 9:45 or 11:15 a.m. worship services. Worship attendance is part of the class commitment. 
  • There will be several outside of class opportunities for service, fellowship, and learning, including a September 17-18 kickoff retreat.
