Confirmation is a two-year program which encourages our 9th/10th graders to explore questions of faith, learn more about the Christian tradition and experience healthy mentoring relationships with adults in our congregation. This two-year program leads our youth to an individual’s decision to affirm (or not affirm) the vows made by his/her parents at baptism and to join this community of faith.  It is carefully designed to be substantive and meaningful while respecting the very busy lives of our active youth. Classes are held approximately once a month throughout the school year, and offer our teens a safe place to discuss questions of faith, while building relationships with God, with each other, and with our larger faith community. This pivotal time in their spiritual growth offers retreats, times of quiet meditation and prayer, and various forms of art throughout their learning experience.
