Confirmation is a process whereby young people are supported and nurtured in the faith community as they come to understand themselves better in relationship with God. They are invited to explore the doctrines of faith and incorporate practices of discipleship into their daily living. It is a time for experiencing God’s grace and committing to following the way of Christ as part of the priesthood of all believers in preparation for making a profession of faith in Jesus Christ.
Confirmation preparation is held annually at Christ UMC includes Sunday morning classes, one-on-one times for the confirmands and their mentors (adult faith friends), three service projects, field trips and a closing retreat. It takes commitment, but it also allows everyone participating to make big steps on the path of living as disciples of Jesus Christ.
