Confirmation: This is a great, faith-growing opportunity for our 8th grade or older children who have not been confirmed. The 2017/2018 Confirmation Class begins on Sunday, September 17, with 8th graders starting on their Confirmation journey including 12 class sessions. To register: Confirmation Registration Form. See the schedule behind the link included below:
There will be a Mentoring portion of the program that will take the place of class sessions in mid-November until mid-January, and then again in mid-February and continue through March. Each youth will meet one on one with a member of our congregation for a total of 10 sessions. Finally, Confirmation Sunday will be April 15, 2017. If you would like to participate in this class or have questions, please contact Pastor Scott (319) 624-2288 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our goal for the Confirmation experience is to help youth discern their faith in Christ, confirm it and truthfully live that commitment. This is why Confirmation is more than a 90-minute class on Sunday night. It will prepare them for a lifetime of Christian discipleship. Therefore students will be expected to attend worship, participate in Sunday school, Youth group, join in field trips, and volunteer with special activities (such as Football Dinners or Highway 1 Cleanup). We will need the support of parents to assist as chauffeurs, providers of snacks, and to help supervise during special activities.
Know Your Story…Encounter the faith narrative from creation to Christianity.
Confirm Your Faith…Embrace the essential beliefs and practices of The United Methodist Church.
Live Your Commitment…Embody the confirmation vows and embark on the Christian discipleship journey.
Confirmation is not the beginning or the end of the faith journey. Confirmation is about making disciples. It is that simple and that challenging.
Here are the 2016-2017 students who were confirmed April 23, 2017 into Solon United Methodist Church.
