Confirmation in the United Methodist tradition is a rite through which young Christians affirm the faith of the church, make or renew the vows of baptism, and commit to lives of discipleship as professing members of the United Methodist Church.
The sessions are organized around three primary teaching objectives:
Know Your Story - gives confirmands a basic knowledge and understanding of the Christian story as contained in the Old and New Testaments and the history of the church.
Confirm Your Faith - teaches confirmands about the core beliefs, practices, and emphases of United Methodist Christians
Live Your Commitment - explores with confirmands the vows that they will take if they choose to be confirmed so that they understand the commitment they will be making and the expectations that come with being confirmed as a professing member of The United Methodist Church.
Would you pray about this and if you believe you know a young person (usually around age 12 and up) who might be ready, would you talk with him or her and see if this is something he or she would be interested in pursuing? It is important that this step is taken when the young person decides it is time, so no pressure! For more information, please contact Pastor Brett: 912-674-4935 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
