CONFIRMATION

Confirmation is a very important time for students to explore their own personal relationship with Christ. All students entering 8th in the Fall of 2017 through 12th grade level students are eligible to participate in the Confirmation Journey. This includes weekly teaching by our Pastors and staff, small group time for their appropriate age-level, a two day retreat to our beautiful Warren W. Willis Camp in Leesburg, a mission experience, and our Confirmation Ceremony.

We pray for your student’s preparation this summer, and hope you will begin to make plans for this wonderful experience in the fall. Each student will have an opportunity to learn and understand what it means to be a Christian, as we study the history of the church and the founders of Methodism, Scriptural truths, and our responsibilities as the body of Christ!

It is very important that students can attend the following dates:

8/27-First Meeting

9/29-9/30-Confirmation Retreat at Warren Willis

12/2-Confirmation Service
