Confirmation is a time for 8th graders to explore their faith, learn about the Christian and Presbyterian traditions, and grow in community with one another.
When a baby is baptized in a Presbyterian Church, the parents and the whole church make vows to lovingly raise that child in the Christian faith. When you reach a certain age (in our church it’s 8th grade), you are given the opportunity in confirmation to claim that faith as your own.
Confirmation 2021-2022 Schedule
The Confirmation class will meet in-person in accordance with our church's reopening committee's guidance. Beginning September 22nd the class will meet at the church on Wednesdays from 5:00-6:00 for discussion and faith building. Following meetings, families are encouraged to visit our weekly Wednesday Night Live gatherings for fellowship and a catered meal. Confirmands should bring a mask, a pen or pencil, and a bible. Please email Jim Cochrane if you have any questions.
