Teach me, O Lord, to follow your decrees:
Then I will keep them to the end
Give me understanding, and I will keep your law
And obey it with all my heart.
Direct me in the paths of yoru commands,
For there I find delight.
The purpose of the Confirmation Program is to immerse youth in grades seven through nine in the Bible, the Church, and what it means to be a disciple of Christ, as part of the fulfillment of the promises made by their parents, sponsors and congregation on the day of their baptism. The youth are given the opportunity to affirm their baptism at the completion of their studies, and to be accepted as confirmed voting members of the congregation.
Confirmation students attend classes on Sunday mornings 9:00-10:10am. Attendence is required at least 75% of class sessions for each unit, or make up work must be completed.
Classes are designed to include activity, interaction and participation. Students are encouraged to ask questions.
