Confirmation Class


Confirmation classes meet Sunday mornings at 9:30am, beginning Sunday, September 18, 2016.

Our goal is to confirm the faith in our youth, to help them own and live their faith in Jesus Christ, not simply conform to what they have been told to believe. Confirmation challenges young people to look at things they’ve thought was true, really think about what they believe, and ask why they believe it. Our approach to confirmation involves the visual aspects of the faith with the help of the Presbyterian seal and writing and depicting our faith with words and symbols. Along the way, we’ll visit a Jewish synagogue, Islamic community center, Catholic church and Baptist church. We’ll talk with the leaders about their faith and put their faith in conversation with our own. We’ll also go on a retreat with other youth at Holmes Presbyterian Conference Center. Contact the church office if you are interested in learning more.

Confirmation Sunday will be May 7, 2017 at the 10:45 am service.
