Confirmation Outline for 2012


What is Confirmation?

Confirmation is nothing less than giving people the equipment they need to be faithful disciples.  It is based on the belief that: 

  • God has a plan for your life;
  • You cannot fully experience that plan without education and information about your faith and how you experience it in your life.

Our task is to take time with you, give you some skills, insights, and experiences in order that you can be faithful to God's promise made at your baptism.  We will have some fun along the way as we learnn about ourselves and each other, and we'll have some special outings (see below).

Confirmation is not about joining the church. Joining the church is a choice you make after completing these Confirmation classes where you will be viewing your faith and seeing God's guidance in your life.  The Confirmation ceremony will take place during worship services on Confirmation Weekend, May 26-27, 2012.

Confirmation Ceremony

 


The Confirmation ceremony will occur during the worship services the weekend of May 26-27, 2012.  

 

If you choose to be Confirmed, I need to know:

  • Your name as you want it to appear in the bulletin;
  • Parents' names that you want to list with yours in the bulletin;
  • If you need to be baptized;
  • Which worship service you attend. (It is possible that we may have the group join during the Saturday service this year.)
