Confirmation

Our faith-based program is intended for 6th, 7th and 8th grades, and includes large group presentations, small group discussions, worship projects, service projects within the congregation and community and fellowship events.  Confirmation Sunday is normally held the first Sunday of May.

Confirmation Orientation will be held on Wednesday, September 6th, at 6:00 p.m. for all 6th, 7th, and 8th graders.  Orientation is for both students and parents (or interested adult).  This will be your opportunity to register, learn more about the program, and review the 2017-2018 calendar.  We hope to see you there!!!!
