Youth Confirmation

The pandemic had originally put many ministries on hold over a year ago, but we are excited to let you know that we will be restarting confirmation in person! Those that had begun confirmation in 2020 or youth that are currently in the 7th grade and above may register. Please note that times are tentative and to be confirmed soon. Classes begin on May 16, and will conclude on "Confirmation Weekend" with a service project on Saturday, June 12 and Confirmation Sunday at worship on June 13. The May 30 date will be a movie that can be watched on your own time since that is Memorial Day weekend. Anticipated class time is 11:30 am - 1:00 pm, but may be adjusted as the worship times as we transition to indoor worship along with summer outdoor worship are being finalized. Youth may bring their lunches to eat during class. In addition, we are planning a fun event and learning experience in July and August as a follow-up opportunity.
