Confirmation takes place in 8th grade and is a time when students learn about their faith and begin to articulate it for themselves. Our program encourages questioning and pairs each student with a mentor who shares their journey of faith with them. Confirmation begins in January and meets weekly through May, when students participate in the confirmation worship service. Classes are taught by Rev. Darcy Crain.
Testimony from a parent:
For both our children, our goals in having them participate in the rite of confirmation were to continue a tradition fundamental to our Christian faith, to provide them with a basic knowledge of our beliefs, and to allow them to make an informed choice regarding their faith going forward. We also wanted to give them a home within a faith community that corresponded with our own progressive beliefs – to teach them that within Christianity, there are communities where all are welcomed. -Claire D.
