Are you interested in confirmation? You are invited to an informational dinner on September 16 at 5pm! Pastor Joe will share information regarding our Confirmation Program for 2018-2019. Confirmation is for all students who are either at least 13 years old (by September 30) or in 8th grade.
What is confirmation?
Confirmation is a spiritual and educational process for teenagers (13 years old or 8th grade and older) to guide them in the understanding, experiencing, and practicing of the Christian faith. The end result of this program is to help the teens to confirm their faith in Jesus Christ and the main tenets of the Christian faith. The program begins each year in the Fall and culminates in the Spring of each year.
What is the process?
First, you will be expected to attend worship or Sunday School weekly on Sunday morning. Plus, you are expected to participate in several of our youth activities (youth fellowship, mission projects, or bible study) from November-April (this does not mean attendance at every event is mandatory, but you should participate in some things).
Second, you can choose a mentor or one can be assigned to you. This adult member of the church is someone who will pray for and check in with you regularly. Their job is to be your companion on this journey. In addition, your mentor will be able to help with any questions you might have about the Bible and church. If you have a specific person in mind contact Rev. Tiedemann.
Third, you will be expected to read through and take notes with reflections on the New Testament. At the end of each month you will turn in your notes and reflections to Rev. Tiedemann. (If reading isn’t your thing, you may listen to the NIV or TNIV audio of the New Testament.) Click here to www.bible.com (website) or https://www.bible.com/app (tablets and phones).
