What to Expect

Sunday Mornings

9 – 10:15 a.m., September – April

Confirmation meets most Sunday mornings for class and small groups. Confirmands sit together for the first 15 minutes of worship at 9 a.m. and then go to the Youth Lounge for class and small groups.

 

Retreats

September & March

The confirmation class includes a fall and spring weekend retreat. The retreats allow for a much deeper experience than the weekly meetings allow—deeper exploration of faith, deeper connection with peers, plus they’re a lot of fun! Fall 2017 retreat info can be found here.

 

Worship, Service, and Spiritual Practice

The confirmation year is not only about learning about our faith, but also about practicing it individually and with others. Confirmands will also be involved throughout the year in worship, service, and individual spiritual practices—more info below.

 

Confirmation Meetings

Each confirmand and their parent(s)/guardian(s) should schedule a 30-minute meeting with Sean within the first month of confirmation. This gives us a chance to get to know each other a bit more, talk about expectations and hopes, and answer any questions/concerns about confirmation.

Sign up here.
