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 & the bishop & 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 & 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 & commissioning them to serve Christ & His Church with the unique gifts & talents they have been given by God.

Each one of us has been uniquely formed & gifted & we all have a part to play in serving Christ & His kingdom.  Our confirmands are encouraged to consider what gifts & talents God has given them & 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 & we’ll also talk about ways you can encourage & resource your child while going through the class. The Parents Meeting is Sunday, February 7 from 12:15-1pm in the Youth Room, 2nd Floor of Ridley Hall .

About the Class

Each week students hear a teaching & participate in table groups lead by senior high students who are themselves connected in our High School Midweek. Each year the class attends a 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, & participation in the testimony night are required for confirmation.

Small Group 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 Small Group Leader or for more information contact Jonathon Welch (JWelch@StAndrews.Church or 843.284.4382).
