Welcome to Confirmation!
After much thought and prayer, Confirmation this year is going to have a different look than it has in the past.
Confirmation at Immanuel is all about building relationships, making connections, and “trying on church” as well as learning about our faith.
Confirmation is for 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th graders. Ninth grader students finish their study in the fall of their 9th grade year and then participate in the Rite of Confirmation the fall of their 9th grade year. This year our ninth graders will be confirmed on Sunday October 25, 2015 at the 9:00 am service.
When? Sunday Afternoons from 12:30-2:00
- 1st Sunday of the month: Class time for students AND parents with Pastor Molly
- 2nd Sunday of the month: Class for students only with teachers TBA
- 3rd Sunday of the month: Service project or Field Trip with Sonja leading and parents assist-
ing occasionally (times and places may vary)
- 4th Sunday of the month: At home faith devotion/assignment
We also may have a retreat one time during the year. There will also be other requirements that students are expected to complete during the year in order to be considered for being confirmed when they have completed the 3 year program.
