Welcome Confirmation Class of 2019!
We invite you to register for our upcoming Confirmation Class for eighth graders graduating in 2019! Join us as we explore our faith, connecting our own experiences with the stories of our Presbyterian heritage.
What is Confirmation?
Confirmation is a time to discern what our faith means to us. In this class, you will dive into the Bible stories, Presbyterian Theology, and will be asked to creatively express your own feelings and beliefs around the gospel. Through this process we will be working with mentors who will help us grow and articulate our beliefs each step of the way. Confirmation class is a time of self-discovery in the arms of God ending in an important decision made by the eighth grader to be confirmed as a member of the Presbyterian Church or to continue discernment further.
A mentor is a responsible adult that you trust to be honest and open with you about faith. Mentors will be responsible for certain tasks and deadlines and must be able to drive. Your mentor does not need to be your same gender. They should not be a relative to you, a parent of another student in the class, or under the age of 25. A mentor is someone who will guide you through the more difficult portions of confirmation and someone who will continue to support you after your confirmation graduation. If you need help finding a mentor, please contact Rev. Béghin and we will take care of you. Once you have chosen a mentor please send their information to Rev. Béghin.
Class begins this September and will run twice a month through Confirmation Sunday on June 10th, 2019. Class will be held every other Sunday during Sunday School hour at 9:45 a.m. A more detailed calendar with a classroom assignment will be released one month before the start of confirmation class.
Please register by September 1st 2018. You can register at https://ebeghin.wufoo.com/forms/confirmation-2019/
I am so excited to have you all in class this year! We’re going to have so much fun! If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to call or email me!
