Confirmation Program (for Ninth Graders and older)


Our Congregation uses a program that is 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 community of believers in a personal way. It can be used as a stand-alone program, or in conjunction with your current curriculum as a special experiential unit.



An “apprenticeship” approach to confirmation pairs adult mentors from the congregation with confirmation students. It includes a series of learning experiences where adult mentors and confirmands are both teachers and learners at the same time. 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.



Elements of the Program
So what exactly is Making Disciples? It is a 13-session confirmation mentoring program.

Topics explore the basics of Christian faith:
