All 6th Graders, or any Youth Non-Confirmed, Are Invited
Confirmation is for any youth has not been confirmed in the church before. We start at 6th grade, but if your teen is above 6th grade and hasn't been confirmed, he or she is welcome to be a part of the confirmation class.
Confirmation starts March 5th, meets every Sunday morning at 11 in the youth house (we're using one of the back rooms). It's about teens learning the foundations of the Christian faith and accepting it as their own. We will hold a special confirmation worship service Sunday, June 4 to recognize all of those who have completed the course.
Like a tattoo, the fundamental truths of the faith are supposed to be permanently etched into us. However, a lifetime of learning, loving, and living the scriptures requires that at some point, we really begin to understand where they come from and what they mean.
The Absolute Basics of the Christian Faith is a visual introduction to the core beliefs of the Christian faith. While it assumes no background knowledge of the scriptures or church teachings, this eight-week study is stocked with rich explanation and engaging videos that bring catechesis to life for people of all ages, backgrounds, and stops along their spiritual journey. Like all books, it is possible to read this one alone, but it is designed specifically to be studied in community—to lead small and large groups through the big ideas of the faith. The memory verses, catechism, text, and videos in each lesson work together seamlessly to provide a clear, compelling introduction to Christian belief.
In working through this study, you’ll be binding the truth about God on your head, hands, and house through scripture memorization and by learning the answers to important questions about God. Obeying Jesus takes a lifetime of learning. As you enter this study, let God’s grace shape and change you. This is what it means to be a disciple.
