Confirmation is an exciting time in the lives of our students. Offered every fall for middle school students in an eight week Sunday morning class, Confirmation challenges students to examine the basics of their faith on a personal level and make a lifelong commitment to Christ. Each class consists of two teachers and approximately twelve students who will spend the classes together discussing the core principles of our Christian Faith including sin, grace, the trinity, forgiveness, service, practices of the faith, and salvation. At the end of the eight weeks students will have the opportunity to be confirmed and become members of the church. We would like to invite all students that are going to be in 6th-8th grade for the 2017-2018 school year to join us for Confirmation next fall! (Class for 2016-17 students is currently underway)
