Confirmation

     Confirmation is a Rite within the church, which is the affirmation of the vows made during the Sacrament of Baptism. 

     The path to confirmation, involves participating in the confirmation classes.  During these classes we learn about the confirmation/baptismal vows; about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, the Bible, prayer, and basic theological principals of our faith; about mission and outreach; about the history of the church from the first disciples to modern day; and more.

     These classes are for both baptized and unbaptized teens and young adults who are interested in becoming members of St. Paul's UCC.

     The recommend starting age for the confirmation program is 8th grade.  Youth as young as 7th grade are welcome to participate.  Older teens and young adults are also very welcome to participate.  This is a two year program, so it is highly recommended that interested teenages start by or before 11th grade.  As a class, we meet just during the school year (not over the summer) about twice a month or so for about an hour and a half.
