Confirmation is offered to young people in high school. This year-long class provides an opportunity for a young person to learn more about Christian beliefs and practices. Confirmation is linked to the sacrament of baptism that is typically offered to newborns.
In confirmation, young people have the opportunity to make a personal commitment, confirming the promises made on their behalf at baptism. Each student, called confirmands, works with a mentor in the congregation. Activities include Bible study; discussions about God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit; presentations of people whose faith inspired them to make the world a better place; and community service projects.
