In the Christian tradition, confirmation is an important stepping stone on the path from spiritual infancy to spiritual maturity. This class, open to students in 8th to 10th grades, prepares young people to publicly affirm their faith in and loyalty to Jesus Christ, if they are ready.
Students will learn the books of the Bible, key Bible verses, and truths about Christianity that every disciple should know. The class also includes a required overnight trip to Gretna Glen Camp and Retreat Center. Pastor Ricky will also lead a trip to Old Saint George's United Methodist Church in Philadelphia.
Students must have a good attendance record and pass their final exam in order to take the vows of membership on Confirmation Sunday, at the end of June.
