The rite of Confirmation is a time-honored practice within the Methodist Church and many denominations where youth enter a period of learning and discernment. Through the process they are taught many of the basic elements of the Christian Faith and invited to consider what God’s call upon their life may be. It ends with a celebration and confirmation of their faith in Jesus Christ and full membership into the life of their given congregation.
When will regular gatherings be?
Exact timing and location of gatherings will be determined by general responses to this Survey.

There are a variety of lessons and topics ranging from the Bible, Major Doctrines, the Sacraments, and elements of Church History. All of our lessons are read through a lens of Methodist Theology and an understanding based on the grace we have come to know in Jesus Christ. All questions are encouraged and welcomed.
