Confirmation Interest Meeting

Confirmation is a small group program designed to help students understand what it means to be a Christian.  Combined with an in-depth look at the beliefs of the United Methodist Church, students prepare for the opportunity to profess their faith before the congregation and accept full membership in the church. We invite students in 6th grade and above who are ready to take this significant step in their faith journey to sign up for Confirmation. If your student is interested in Confirmation, please contact Pam Bentley, Director of Youth & Family Ministry at  Confirmation classes will begin on April 7.
