Confirmation

Confirmation incorporates a variety of activities and experiences which will help each child to learn and appreciate the importance of a well-balanced Christian life.  The Confirmation program includes classroom instruction, small group activities and discussion, fellowship opportunities and service projects, which will help each child participate more fully in the mission and ministry of the church.  The Confirmation program comprises 6th, 7th, and 8th graders and meets Wednesday evenings from 6:00-8:00pm during the school year.


CONFIRMATION 2018/2019!

If your child is entering the 6th grade and you would like to enroll him/her in Confirmation,  please contact Laura McDonald (laura@redeemerbirmingham.org).  She will get you all set up!  If you have a child that is older or younger than 6th grade, and you are interested in starting him/her in the Confirmation program, Laura can help you with that too!  You will also need to fill out the NEW student registration form below.

Family Service Night – INFORMATION

This is very similar to when we did Fluff & Stuff in November – I’m SUPER excited!  Redeemer is teaming up with Heart 2 Hart Detroit, Care Net, & Faithful Friends to make care packages for the homeless, the homebound, struggling mothers, and the firefighters next door!  Dinner will be provided!  Confirmands are required to be at the meeting, per usual, and families are more than welcome to come too!  But – you MUST sign up if your family plans on joining us so that we can plan for food.  You can sign up here: https://goo.gl/forms/LlkqYTrLxpglVdHj2 or on the Town Square bulletin board 😊  Confirmands will earn service hours for this, and they will earn family hours if your family comes to help too!
