Life can be confusing as a teenager. Everyone has an opinion on what is right and what is wrong. It can be hard to really understand what to believe and how to act. Grace Youth Confirmation is an opportunity for Jr. High youth to examine their faith and experience as well as get real answers on what the Bible and what the church have to say on major issues. Through small group meetings, activities, service projects, and learning we hope to help students understand the world from a faith perspective and to better understand their role in God’s beautiful creation.
Through confirmation students take ownership of the promises made at their baptism. During this time of learning and reflection youth are given the opportunity to personally embrace their faith and as they become adult members of the church on the day they affirm their faith in church. Each student participates in the program for 2 years and there are required projects students must complete. Any students entering into the 7th grade and older can sign up to be a part of the program. Anyone is welcome to participate even if they do not wish to be confirmed.
Youth attend worship, participate in class on most Wednesdays from 5:30 PM-7:00 PM, in service work, and other activities and services throughout the year. We also have a yearly lock-in and go to Confirmation Camp every summer. Please see the youth calendar for specific information or contact Pastor JoAnna at firstname.lastname@example.org or the office at (815) 633-8075 with any questions.
