Confirmation 2021 Begins this Fall
While the world around us is quickly changing, our commitment to the spiritual growth and development of all of our Grove Youth remains the same.
Our confirmation class is a big part of that commitment! This class offers students an opportunity to explore the depths of their faith and helps them begin to understand what it means to become a fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ. One of the biggest highlights of this experience is them being able to make their first public profession of faith at their church Confirmation ceremony!
What happens during the Confirmation experience?
In these weekly classes, Confirmands will be exposed to the United Methodist way of faith. While openly discussing history, theological concepts, and membership in the church, we trust the Holy Spirit will be inwardly at work. In order for the Confirmands to understand what it means to personally respond to Christ, each student will develop a deeper relationship with God and her or his peers, while learning about himself or herself during the Confirmation experience. Your child will learn about how important it is to be involved in the life of the church and what that involvement requires of her or him. He or she will begin to put this understanding into practice while engaging in church, learning their gifts and their entire faith journey well after the Confirmation experience concludes.
Confirmation offers a special community where intentional nurturing and faith formation can occur. Community matters and the community formed through the Confirmation experience is like no other. Confirmation may look different in this fall due to Covid-19, but just as we’ve continued to grow and serve our 2020 class, we can assure you that it will be a memorable experience for your student as well.
