Confirmation 2020-2021: Grace UMC is excited to offer our full Confirmation Program for this upcoming year. We will begin in late August, when the school year resumes, and we will celebrate the completion of Confirmation in late March. We do not anticipate any disruptions from the current COVID-19 pandemic, but the pastors and staff at Grace are prepared to make adjustments if needed.
What is Confirmation? Confirmation is our response to baptism. In baptism, we recognize and celebrate God’s gifts of grace, forgiveness, and love as we are welcomed into Christ’s universal Church. During Confirmation we respond to God’s gifts, learning more about God, Jesus, the Spirit, the Bible, and the Church but also exploring how to follow Jesus and how to actually be the church as God intends.
The Confirmation Program at Grace UMC provides our youth with an opportunity to build new relationships within the church, engage in mission opportunities, study the scriptures, and explore their beliefs and doubts. Confirmation is not the end of our faith journey but just the beginning; confirmands will be introduced to resources within the church and beyond that will assist them in the lifelong journey of discipleship.
