Anyone is welcome to affirm their baptism at any time in order to be reminded of the amazing grace God has given us! Confirmation is a special opportunity for adolescents to publicly declare their intent to continue their faith journey and to receive the love and support of their congregation.
Who can join Confirmation?
At Hope, Confirmation preparation usually begins in 5th grade. Students who are in 5th through 8th grades are invited to participate in this special faith formation. The Rite of Confirmation typically occurs in the fall of the students' 9th grade year.
Adult volunteers (Confirmation assistants) are also needed ... please email Pastor Rebecca if you are able to help.
What do students learn in Confirmation?
As appropriate for their ages, confirmands will explore the Hebrew Scriptures and the New Testament in more depth than our younger children do in Sunday School. They will also have the opportunity to learn about Christian history, teachings, and ritual. Our goal is to give young people a solid foundation of love and support for what we pray will be a lifelong journey of faith made in curiosity, humility, and wonder.
When does Confirmation meet?
Confirmation runs September through May and meets on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-7:30pm. Currently, we are planning for an alternating weekly schedule.
