Grade 9 Confirmation
Confirmation teachers are Dave Urban & Lori Allaire. The kick-off date for this group is Sunday, Sept. 27th, 11:30 a.m. at Manwaring. A schedule will be issued following that first meeting.
When youth reach 9th grade, they begin the Confirmation preparation process. In September they begin with fun, community-building gatherings and light study to ensure students are prepared for later in-depth learning. Through class discussions, field trips, engaging ministries of the church, a retreat, and journaling, youth explore the historic Christian faith, how their community lives it today, and how God speaks to each of them individually. Each youth has an adult church member as a prayer mentor to offer added support. Students learn about the baptismal covenant and the vows they may choose to confirm. Confirmation with Bishop Prior is in May.
