Each one of us has been uniquely formed and gifted and we all have a part to play in serving Christ and His kingdom. Our confirmands are encouraged to consider what gifts and talents God has given them and how they might use those gifts to serve Christ and His kingdom.

What is Confirmation?

At least three things are happening when someone is confirmed.  First, there is a public confession of the faith.  The confirmands stand before the congregation and the bishop and affirm their belief in the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Second, there is a public commitment to grow in that faith.  The confirmands declare their intention to seek God as He is revealed in His Word. Additionally, they dedicate themselves to a lifelong pursuit of reading, learning and reflecting upon His Word.  Finally, there is a public commissioning.  Confirmation has sometimes been called the “ordination of the laity.”  In the service the bishop will lay his hands upon those being confirmed challenging them and commissioning them to serve Christ and His Church with the unique gifts and talents they have been given by God.

Each one of us has been uniquely formed and gifted and we all have a part to play in serving Christ and His kingdom.  Our confirmands are encouraged to consider what gifts and talents God has given them and how they might use those gifts to serve Christ and His kingdom.

Parents’ Meeting

Every parent needs to attend our parents meeting. We’ll lay out the things expected of your students and we’ll also talk about ways you can encourage and resource your child while going through the class. The Parents Meeting is Sunday, January 12 from 12:15-1:30pm in Sams Hall.

About the Class

Each week students hear a teaching and participate in table groups lead by senior high students who are themselves connected in a High School Ministry LifeGroup. Each year the class attends a weekend retreat designed to challenge them as we look to the role of the Holy Spirit in our lives. The confirmation process is concluded by a moving two night event. On Saturday evening the students present their personal testimony as to what Jesus has done in their lives. On Sunday evening they are confirmed in the faith by the bishop.

Attendance at weekly classes, the weekend retreat, and participation in the testimony night are required for confirmation.

Table Leaders

High School Students are an integral part of our confirmation team. We believe that students who have been confirmed have an excellent opportunity to pour into the next generation of students.

Students who are interested being a Confirmation table leader or for more information contact Jonathon Welch (JWelch@StAndrews.Church or 843.284.4382).
