Each year, the Church conducts a confirmation class for those young people who have completed eighth grade and are interested in formally joining the Church. The class meets weekly, typically on Sunday afternoons, for fun and learning. The class starts in the fall and proceeds through the spring, culminating in Confirmation Sunday in the spring, when the class members are formally welcomed into Church membership.
This year, the confirmation class will be taught from the fall through the spring by Rev. Chip Low and church members Gordon Braudaway, Pam Darreff, Ellen Miles and Dave Monk. Activities include classes on the Presbyterian seal and how God has called us to live our faith by serving dinner at the Jan Peek House, helping with the Food Pantry, a retreat with other youth at the Holmes Conference Center, and attendance at services at Temple Beth Am in Yorktown, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church, and the Hudson Valley Islamic Center among other things.
