What is Confirmation?

This is an awesome experience that typically takes place the beginning of each year.  Students (both Jr. High and Sr. High) are invited to take part in this process where they will learn the basics of Christianity, the story of Jesus Christ, and their part in God’s story of redemption and salvation.   The classes are separate by age level, with a qualified teacher instructing both the Jr. High and Sr. High groups.  The process ends with a spiritual, uplifting, and emotional retreat at the Weldon Family Farm in Inverness, FL.

This is a highly celebrated milestone in a youth’s life, and we encourage the entire church family to surround the confirmation class in prayer, mentorship, and support.  For more information, please contact the church office or email Mike Horst.
