Event Details

     Confirmation refers to the decision a person makes to respond to God's grace with intentional commitment, publicly reaffirming his or her baptismal vows before the congregation. During confirmation class, confirmands learn about the meaning of Christian faith, the history and teachings of The United Methodist Church, and an explanation of the baptismal and membership vows they will be professing.


     Confirmation takes place over 10 weeks starting in January and ending in April on Confirmation Sunday. We meet in MFLC Room 313 at 9:30.Below is a list of dates including the Confirmation Retreat (REQUIRED), Confirmation Sunday, and a few dates in which we will not be meeting: 

  • Confirmation Starts: January 21st, 2018
  • Confirmation Retreat: March 2-4th, 2018
  • Confirmation Rehearsal/Dinner: March 28th, 2018
  • Confirmation Sunday: April 8th, 2018
  • Confirmation DOES NOT meet: February 25th or April 1st

      Please look over these dates and take them seriously. The Confirmation class teaches a lot of information in a relatively short period of time. We ask that your student attend every session and the retreat. The material builds on itself and there will be a make-up assignment due if you are absent. One absence will be allowed for the 10 week course.   

This year, the Retreat will be absolutely required for all students to attend. Barring the death of a family member, all students MUST attend the entire weekend.

Evening classes

This year, we will hope to offer evening classes for students who are unable to attend Sunday morning classes. You will still need to attend the retreat. AN IMPORTANT NOTE: we will not be able to offer this class unless there is a 5:1 student: adult ratio. Please consider teaching the class if your student is interested in joining the evening class.

      While we enjoy ministering to the students in Confirmation each year, we cannot run Confirmation without the help of our many adult and student mentors. All parents are invited to join Confirmation as mentors! Student mentors must be in high school and will be selected based on merit, with priority given to older students. Adult mentors do not need to be Biblical scholars or teach lessons to the group- all you need is a passion for students, faith, and a willingness to serve. Mentors use a curriculum to co-lead small groups each Sunday before a large group lesson. Mentors are expected to attend each Confirmation session and the retreat. There will be a mandatory training (offered on two dates- but each mentor must attend one session) for adult and student mentors in January (dates TBD). If you are interested in mentoring and have questions, please contact Michael LeBlanc.
