As we see more clearly who we have been, as we understand more fully the needs of the world, as we draw more effectively upon our theological heritage, we will become better equipped to fulfill our calling as the people of God.
What is Confirmation?
Confirmation is the ritual of confirming faith and the students who have been baptized as infants or young children. Confirmation is an opportunity for them to voice for themselves their faith commitment. Students prepare for confirmation by participating in a year-long time of study, mentoring, bible study and involvement.
What is the Preparation Ministry for Confirmation?
The preparation is three parts: class time to study the theology and the history of the church; mentoring by an adult friends in faith; bible study together of the book of Luke, and involvement with Morrow ministries.
Throughout the school year, confirmands attend meetings and ministry events of the church, participate in worship celebrations, and serve as part of the JYF leadership team in order to understand the role of a full member of a congregation.
Participating in the preparation program gives students an opportunity to dedicate some serious time to thinking about who God is, how we relate to God, and to try out lots of different ways to connect to God.
