Confirmation is the continuation of one’s faith journey (a journey begun at baptism) and the beginning of one’s covenant relationship with the church-not an end unto itself. Confirmation is more than just a series of classes. Confirmands must be fully engaged in the life of the church through worship, service, small groups, and involvement in other ministries. Confirmands emerge from their confirmation experience prepared for a life of Christian discipleship.
- Confirmands over 13 years who had infant baptisms are eligible for confirmation class.
- Confirmands are required to attend all confirmation classes, attend worship each Sunday, meet regularly with a mentor, participate in a Christian education setting other than confirmation, and attend at least one retreat that is arranged by The United Methodist Conferences, Districts, or confirmation retreats.
‘To be confirmed’ means as the sealing of the covenant made in Holy Baptism. In The United Methodist Church, the rite is the covenant that proves confirmands are to be received into The United Methodist Church, and also into a local congregation.
Confirmation class is a faith journey to be the disciples of Jesus Christ. The class meets over a period of 6 months but can be adjusted. Whoever is interested in confirmation class may contact the Pastor.
