THE CONFIRMATION JOURNEY (2021-2022)

Confirmation doesn’t happen only on the day you stand before your
congregation and affirm your faith.  It doesn’t start in seventh grade when you begin classes. Confirmation starts at baptism with your parent’s/guardian’s promises to help you live out your faith.

The Confirmation journey explores the gifts of discipleship as promised in Baptism and Affirmed by the student in 10th grade. In these promises, we pledge as members of the body of Christ:

· To live among God’s faithful people

· To hear the word of God and share in the Lord’s supper

· To proclaim the good news of God in Christ through word and deed

· To serve all people following the example of Jesus

· To strive for justice and peace in all the earth

The Holy Spirit uses these gifts to stir the embers of faith, create bold leaders and transform congregations to be communities of Jesus where there are life-changing relationships with God, one another and the world.
