This year we will continue our deep dive into the story of God that we find in the Bible. We’ll encounter Scripture filled with inspiration and encouragement, and we’ll also explore passages that are more complicated and challenging.
Each week we will focus on one passage, but will also launch into the larger context of how God’s story is being told through that passage. More importantly, each week we will explore how God’s story is intimately tied to our own stories, and how a God who is beyond our imagination can also be a God who loves us deeply and personally.
One of the most important rites of passage for young people in the United Methodist Church is Confirmation - the opportunity for young people to take the next step on their faith journey, and make a commitment to God and to being a part of the Body of Christ.
Confirmation is open to youth in at least 7th grade.
Our next Confirmation Class will begin in the fall of 2019.
