Making Memories: Past, Present, and Future
Send pictures of your children participating in Affirmation of Baptism classes to firstname.lastname@example.org.
As people of God, we are called to grow each day in the faith we share.
Welcome to our Affirmation of Baptism (Confirmation) page. During this time of physical distancing we want to make sure there are still opportunities for learning. It is hard to replace the face-to-face interaction that goes on in a class setting; however, we do want to continue our learning as much as possible.
Sixth and Seventh graders learn stories from the New and Old Testaments; this year they will focus on the New Testament. Lessons will include learning about the life of Jesus, diving into his parables, discovering his miracles, and reading some of Paul’s letters to the early church. Eighth Graders will look deeply into the Ten Commandments, The Creed, The Lord’s Prayer, and begin to form their own faith statement while discussing some of the tougher questions of faith. In lieu of retreats at Mar-Lu-Ridge and Skycroft this year, all three grades will have special Zoom sessions covering similar materials that would have typically been covered at the retreats. See the lesson calendar below for the specific dates.
Classes will meet for sixth through eighth graders via Zoom at 10:15 a.m. each Sunday morning beginning September 20th. Sessions will also be recorded so that students can watch them later, if they were absent. Supporting materials will also be online for all grades.
The youth are expected to complete nine worship notes each year. Find the link to the notes below. Send your completed notes to Pastor Z via email. See the contact us button at the bottom of the page for his email address.
