Confirmation Starts in October!

Our new Confirmation process will begin in October.

At St. Andrew’s Church, confirmation can be an exciting, revealing, even transforming experience. Participants explore what it means to respond personally to Jesus’ call, “Follow me”, deepening our relationship with God and one another, building community, and committing ourselves to an intentional way of living. The process requires us to bring the best of ourselves.

The theme of our time together is “Our Life With Jesus”. In this class, we are the disciples. The process is story-centered, participatory, and interactive. If a confirmand was baptized as a child, their parents, family, and faith community made promises on their behalf. Now they have matured to a place and time where they will claim their own relationship with God and make promises of their own. For those who have not yet been baptized, it can be a rich time of preparation.

Confirmation Class is scheduled to meet on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm, a total of 23 times from September through May. Also included in the process are service activities, worship leadership, a Confirmation Project, and a Spiritual Retreat. During the season of Lent, we do not have class. Instead, confirmands work with mentors from the congregation on a “Lenten Journey” program of growth and discovery. Each confirmand is assigned an adult mentor from the congregation who will accompany and encourage them throughout the Confirmation year. We celebrate the Rite of Confirmation on Pentecost Sunday, May 20, 2018. It is a joyous event in the life of the whole church.

People seventh grade and above are eligible for consideration (at least 12 years old). Each participant is expected to engage the Confirmation Class generously and fully. If you would like to explore the process further and have not yet completed a Confirmation Covenant, please contact Pastor Scott ASAP.
