Confirmation

 

CONFIRMATION IS . . .

Confirmation is a big step in your child’s personal faith journey, readying him or her for a life of discipleship and Christian service.
Our Confirmation program prepares your 6th grader to claim the Christian faith as his or her own.
 
Confirmation and the Christian Faith is a family commitment as well. As a family we encourage you to worship together at 8:30 or 11 and to participate in the Christ Church Serve Now days that happen the 1st Saturday every other month. (See Below)
 
 
 

DECISION, MEMBERSHIP, BAPTISM

If students decide they want to follow Jesus and be a part of the faith-community, this commitment is celebrated at a Sunday service and is expressed by the laying on of hands by the pastors and the students becoming full members of the church. The Sacrament of Baptism will be either administered or “remembered” prior to the confirmation vows. Students may take the classes and choose not to be confirmed.
