This 2-year program during the school year prepares 7th-8th grade students for full membership in the church. This course teaches the basic beliefs of the faith, theology, and the responsibilities which come with a Profession of Faith and Church membership. A special service of worship in June is designated to celebrate this rite of passage into mature faith and full membership for all 8th graders who complete the course. The class meets one Saturday a month in addition with overnight retreats, and lock-ins.

The video below is an example of the curriculum for confirmation from Sparkhouse.


Confirmation Class is designed to speak to the whole person—questioning, doubting, faith building, and exploring. We’ll cover important topics like Jesus, the Bible, and the history of Christianity. But we’ll also play together, worship together, and participate in service projects. The youth will make friends and learn about being a part of a community that respects and cares for each other.

Registration Deadline: September 20

The Registration Form, Permission and Medical Release Forms, and a check for $50 must be turned in to the church office by September 20. Please understand that, except for families new to the community, late registrations will not be accepted.
