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.

*As always, please remember to only use the Town Square doors and make sure that your child signs in when arriving.  Please let me know if your child is ill or an unforeseen circumstance happens and will not be present.  If your child needs to be picked up early for some unforeseen reason, please also let me know or come inside and find me.  Students will be dismissed at 8pm, no earlier.
