The Confirmation Program is open to 8th grade students, and requires a September-May (school-year) commitment. Led by Youth Minister Hattie Koher, Pastor Lisa Telomen, and Director of Children & Family Ministries Polly Walgren, the program is designed to help students:

  • Understand the framework of the Christian year
  • Become familiar with the United Methodist doctrine
  • Incorporate the rich heritage of our Wesleyan roots
  • Develop loving and lasting relationships within a community faith by including youth and adults in the confirmation experience.

Attendance at monthly Wednesday night class sessions as well as at Sunday School and Junior High Youth Ministry Offerings is requirement of the program. Other events in which students will participate include the annual Junior High Fall Retreat, Crop Walk, 30-Hour Famine, Meetings with Confirmation Mentor, Attendance at a Church Leadership Council Meeting, and a number of other service events/opportunities. 

Confirmation begins with Confirmation Orientation (for 8th graders and a Parent/Guardian) in September, from 6:30 - 8:00 pm, in Room 208.
