Youth Ministry Confirmation

CONFIRMATION IS . . .

A rite of passage for students to own their faith in Jesus Christ for themselves and to proclaim this faith to their church family. We hold 8 weeks of classes where students are confronted with the Gospel, challenged in who THEY say Jesus is, and learn about Christ’s intention for the Body of Christ. 
 

DECISION, MEMBERSHIP, BAPTISM

If students decide they want to follow Jesus and be a part of the faith-community, this commitment is celebrated at a Sunday breakfast and service and is expressed by the laying on of hands by the pastors and the students becoming full members of the church. The Sacrament of Baptism will be either administered or “remembered” prior to the confirmation vows. Students may take the classes and choose not to be confirmed.
 

SPONSOR

Each student will have a sponsor from the Christ Church congregation who will pray for them, write encouragement letters each week and attend the Confirmation Breakfast and Service with them.

We ask sponsors to attend at least one confirmation class with our confirmands. Sponsors, please sign up to attend one class here
