Confirmation is the rite in which we express a mature commitment to Christ, and receive strength from the Holy Spirit through prayer and the laying on of hands by a bishop. Book of Common Prayer Catechism page 860.
This class is for anyone in 8th grade through 12th grade who has been baptized and is now interested in the rite of confirmation. The class meets during the 10:00 service on Sunday and on Wednesday evenings during Lent.
The text used by the class in 2014 is My Faith My Life: A Teen’s Guide to the Episcopal Church by Jenifer Gamber. The group will compare Baptism and Confirmation, and will explore the history and structure of the Episcopal Church, as well as the Bible, spirituality, worship and God’s call to each person.
