Although confirmation is not a sacrament in The United Methodist Church, it is an important marker along our spiritual journeys. In the United Methodist Church, children are baptized as infants by their parents. Confirmation is a time to understand the faith and vows they were baptized into as infants. Confirmands are instructed on the fullness of what that baptism means and decide for themselves to take on the responsibilities of their own faith. After Confirmation, confirmands have the opportunity to become full members of the local church in their own right.
Confirmation classes have already begun for 2024, so registration is currently closed. Confirmation is for students in 7th grade or above who are ready to commit to owning their faith journey and runs on Sunday afternoons from February through May. Check back for details and registration for Confirmation 2025.
RIVER CITY WORK CAMP
River City Work Camp is led by our High School youth and volunteers to specifically give Middle and High School youth (incoming 6th grade through completed 12th grade) an opportunity to make a real difference in our community. Middle and high schoolers spend the week working on a local low-income housing project, learning, worshipping, and fellowshipping together. Volunteers are always needed for this camp, so please get in touch with us by using the contact form below if you are interested.
We will again be attending Camp Eagle this summer as a group. We will be at their Group Camp, which will incorporate outdoor activities, worship, and preaching to bring students closer to Christ over the course of a week. The dates for Camp Eagle are July 15-20th this summer.
We’ll share details here and in our weekly emails when it’s time to register for 2024.
