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.

We still have slots open for parents to help with snacks and/or meals on Wednesday evenings 😊  If you haven’t signed up to help with one of these things yet… please sign up to help!  We SO appreciate your willingness to help and couldn’t do it without you guys!  Thank you to those of you who have already signed up!

Parent Snack Help Sign Up  (Laura provides the snack… you don’t have to bring one!  You’re helping to set up, serve, & clean up!)

Parent Dinner Help Sign Up 

Service Hour Opportunities….

Below are some sign-ups for current opportunities to earn service hours, or to just help out the church and congregation 😊  Remember, you can earn service hours outside of Redeemer, but the church has lots of opportunities throughout the year!

Family Service Night – * Confirmands are expected to attend, but families are more than welcome to come too – earn some family service hours!  We are all coming together to make Christmas cards for those who are homebound or in nursing homes, packing lunches for the homeless in Detroit, making care packages for those in the Faithful Friends program, writing letters for our Compassion International children that we sponsor, and making “thank you” cards for the Veterans!

Shine the Light Night – *Confirmands can help with games, the charity project, set up, clean up, and more for this “safe Halloween” event at the end of the month!  Sign up to help as a family to earn family service hours – you can help with general needs or decorate a room/hand out candy for the kids to come by for trick-or-treating!

Readers – *Sign up to read the Old Testament & Epistle passages for any of our worship services.  You’ll receive a whole hour of service if you attend the worship service!

Fall Coffee Hour – *Sign up to host coffee hour!  This is super fun, especially if you grab another family and do it together!  It doesn’t have to be anything fancy, and we’ll give your easy-to-follow directions 😊

Family Ushering – *Sign up to usher together as a family!  You’ll pass out bulletins before the service, seat people, collect the offering, and clean up a little bit after the service.  Don’t worry – our head usher, Brian May, will be there with you every step of the way!  My family used to do this when I was a kid, and it was so much fun!  I learned A LOT about the Order of Service and how much work it takes to run Sunday worship!

Acolyting/Cross Bearing – *Year 1 students need to acolyte or cross bear at least twice.  Year 2 & 3 students need to acolyte or cross bear at least three times.
