"“Christians are made, not born,” said Tertullian. Following Jesus does not come naturally. Discipleship requires time and training. When Jesus commissioned his disciples, he commanded them “to make disciples” (Matthew 28). How do we do that? By “baptizing and teaching them all I have commanded.” In confirmation, the church obeys Christ by making disciples through helping people live into their baptism and teaching them all that Jesus demands." - Will Willamon
This year's confirmation program will run from September 2021 through May 2022. We are updating our confirmation program this year to a mentor model where each confirmand is paired with a mentor who walks the journey of confirmation with them through the year.
This new program allows for more flexibility and includes 13 individual sessions with their mentor, a trip to Church of the Resurrection in Kansas City, and a confirmation retreat. The 13 mentor sessions will be worked out between the mentor and confirmand based on their schedule availability.
Confirmation is for anyone 7th grade and up. Please register by August 22nd, 2021. We will have our first meeting on August 29th at 11:30 am.
