Confirmation is a time of intentional preparation and it gives 7th graders the opportunity to reflect on the most basic elements of our faith. It also gives them a safe environment to ask questions. Confirmation helps youth investigate the depths of the faith and helps them begin to understand what is means to be a devoted follower of Jesus Christ and to make their first public profession of faith.
During this time, young persons make firm what has gone before: God's prevenient grace, baptism, the teaching and witness of parents and other persons of faith and the teachings and life together in the church. Youth are invited to claim for themselves the name Christian and the name United Methodist. We believe that Confirmation is the most important step in a child's life and in their faith development.
