Confirmation Program (for Ninth Graders and older)

 Confirmation is a rite in the Congregational tradition where a young person, after study, prayer, and contemplation, confirms, those vows presumably made by their parents at their baptism. It is the first rite of adulthood in the eyes of the church.

 

Our Congregation uses a program that is a mentor-based confirmation program that pairs confirmands with adult mentors and guides them through a variety of learning experiences that will strengthen the student's understanding of the faith while connecting him or her with the congregation in a personal way. 

 

The program which runs from early fall, includes a series of montly learning experiences where adult mentors and confirmands are both teachers and learners at the same time.

 

Topic covered include: The Bible, God, Jesus, Holy Spirit, Worship, Baptism 7 Communion, Prayer, Christianity & other religions, Christian Living.

 

We also have confirmands attend worship with churches of other traditions as well as a Jewish synagogue and an Islamic service to have a broad, rich experience that will last a lifetime. Confirmands also write their own statement of faith. Confirmation is on Pentecost Sunday by tradition.

 

 Topic covered include: The Bible, God, Jesus, Holy Spirit, Worship, Baptism 7 Communion, Prayer, Christianity & other religions, Christian Living.
