Youth Confirmation Sunday

“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God - what is good and acceptable and perfect.” (Romans 12:2)

On Confirmation Sunday (April 24th) we celebrate a milestone for 32 of our young people. They will profess personal faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and become full, “professing members” of our church, some by baptism and some by reaffirmation of faith.

Youth Confirmation is a four-month pilgrimage in our church which began last January and culminates each Spring. It includes meetings and special activities designed to help our youth learn about both our beliefs and our history as United Methodist Christians, and its aim has been to help our students take even more important steps towards their own personal Christian growth and maturity.

We express special appreciation to our volunteer adult mentors, youth parents, and others who’ve made personal investments in the lives of each confirmand during this process. Our hope is that these special relationships will live long after Confirmation Sunday itself.

We invite you to join us either during 9am Morning Glory or 11am Traditional worship on April 24th day to celebrate what Christ is doing in and through their lives, to support them with your prayers and presence, and to greet them personally following the services.

Remember, God loves you and I do, too!
