At THE LIFE, we offer confirmation classes to students in the eighth grade and above. Confirmation is an important step in the lives of our young people. It is the time when they recognize and affirm their identity as baptized children of God. Put another way, Confirmation is the time when we claim our Baptism as our own.
The Confirmation program is a series of thematic events, centered on a Biblical teaching. These thematic events are generally held two Sunday evenings each month during the school year. Typically, the students are in grades 8, 9, and 10, but older non-confirmed folks are welcome to join us as well. Students in 10th grade and above are usually confirmed the first week in June.
Our approach to the Confirmation Program blurs and blends youth group and teaching, using games, music, stories, and small-group discussion. Our small-group leaders are older high-school students, who volunteer their time to serve as faith mentors.
Most people cannot believe that Confirmation classes could be both fun and faith-forming. But here at THE LIFE, well . . . just ask one of the students who have been confirmed in the past.
