Confirmation

Many of us were baptized as infants, but as children we struggled to completely grasp the whole concept of faith in Jesus Christ. As we become older, the onus of developing that faith shifts from our parents (who initially vowed to help us grow in the Christian faith) to ourselves, which in turn gives root to our relationship with Jesus Christ. Confirmation ensures that we have the tools and knowledge necessary to continue to grow in our love and understanding of God.

Over a two-year period, confirmation class guides students through the narrative of the Bible through the Old and New Testaments as well as through the history of the church and key concepts such as liturgy and the sacraments. The first year of confirmation culminates in a two-night confirmation retreat during which we cover the following confirmation promises:

  1. To live among God’s faithful people,
  2. To hear his word and share in his supper,
  3. To proclaim the Good News of God in Christ through word and deed,
  4. To serve all people, following the example of our Lord Jesus Christ,
  5. And to strive for justice and peace in all the Earth.

After finishing the two-year program, each student then affirms their faith before the congregation as a culmination of the first steps of their life long faith journey.  Confirmation is an exciting, powerful and significant commitment and as such if you have any questions or concerns please call the Youth and Family Director, Jeremy Ryan at 949-231-2029.
