We are excited to invite you and your son or daughter to participate in University UMC Confirmation—a concentrated time of individually confirming the faith we live in together as family and church. Confirmation classes are for 8th – 12th grade students, their parents and other adults. As we recognize and value the importance of your role in your student’s faith development, we expect parents to attend. This class fulfills the Meeting Phase of the Pathway to Discipleship. We will be reflecting on the Apostles’ Creed through teaching, reading and in-home conversations to allow your student, and yourselves, to confirm his or her faith and the work of God in their life. Confirmation begins with a retreat weekend for students, February 7-9, and a dinner for parents and other adults, February 7. Confirmation continues every Sunday (with exceptions noted below) through May 4, which is Confirmation Sunday.
