Confirmation

More than just a series of classes, confirmation is how your child continues his or her faith journey with the goal of preparing for a life of Christian discipleship. Confirmands will learn to be fully engaged in the life of the church through worship, service, small groups, and involvement in other ministries.

Confirmation is open to all 6th grade students.

Dear Potential Confirmand and Parents,
Confirmation is coming soon! Our Confirmation Class will start on September 5th, and we want you to be part of it! Confirmation Class is that time in your life and in the life of our church when you look closely at what it means to be a Christian in general, to be a United Methodist, and to be an active member of
this congregation. It is a great time to explore your faith, to grapple with some of the tough questions facing you and your generation and to get to know yourselves and your church a bit better. This is the process of you taking your faith into your own hands.
Confirmation will meet on Wednesday evenings from 6:30pm-7:30pm in the church office. Each confirmand will be responsible for 5 hours of community service, attend a service together, usher and greet together, create and develop a poster/banner of a verse you and your sponsor pick out, and to be
filmed giving a brief statement of faith. As part of the Confirmation experience, we ask that each of you find a mentor. This should be a member of our church who is willing to spend some time sharing with you about his/her faith and church experience. The mentor will be expected to join us for one of our classes, stand up with you when you are confirmed, and spend some time with you throughout the 13 weeks. On the registration form there will be a place you can list up to three people. If you need help locating a mentor please let me know and I can assist.
If you choose to be confirmed we will have the service on December 16th that will end with a confirmation banquet for lunch.
Please email Nick Yother for a form. Fill it out and return to me by September 2nd.
Confirmation is going to be awesome this year! If you have any questions or concerns about the class please feel free to email me at Nyother@hickoryflat.org.
In the grip of grace,
Nick Yother
