Fall 2023 Save The Dates Coming Soon!
Flight for Christ Confirmation Journey Coming Soon!
We will begin the journey this fall 2023! All Journey Sessions will be on Sundays 12-2pm with lunch provided. Our first teaching session begins on Sunday, November 12, 2023: 12-2pm with lunch provided @ church in the student ministry wing!
We are pumped to begin our "Flight for Christ" *Confirmation Journey this Fall 2023! The last seven years we have thoroughly enjoyed our confirmands as they have grown in their walk with Jesus and knowledge of the local church. We have most recently confirmed twenty one 8th and 9th grade students last year (2022).
A helpful timeline of the last four years:
Confirmation Journey began in the fall of 2019
2020 Class: Confirmed on November 1, 2020
(delayed due to Covid-19 pandemic)
Next Confirmation Journey began in the fall of 2021
2022 Class: Confirmed on May 1, 2022
Our Next Confirmation Journey will begin in the fall of 2023 (November 12)
2024 Class: To be confirmed in the spring of 2024
Due to the nature of life with Covid-19 Pandemic, offering the confirmation journey beginning in **8th grade and a Director sabbatical/renewal leave, this has been our timeline over the last 4 years. The previous two Confirmation classes (confirmed 2020 & 2022) had a total of 33 students join our church!
*Our Confirmation Journey has continued to use The Holy Bible and Credo Confirmation Curriculum. These same resources will be used when we begin again in the fall of 2023.
**Confirmation is open to all students currently in 8th grade and up! Last year's confirmation class included seven 9th graders alongside the 8th graders. This group structure helps balance and strengthen their focus, maturity level and their ability to process large amounts of information to discern and learn.
