List of Requirements           

  • Sunday School – Each Confirmand is required to participate regularly in Sunday school with a minimum of 20 times including ALL the mandatory Sundays. 
  • Youth Group and Mid-Week Bible Study – Requirement: Attend 20 events (either Youth Group or Bible study or a combination of the two)
  • Service projects – Each Confirmand will participate in two service projects during the Confirmation year.  Many different opportunities will be available including those listed above.
  • Faith statement – Each Confirmand will write a personal faith statement on the second retreat weekend.  This faith statement will be given to the Session for examination purposes and to the parents of the Confirmands on the day they join the church.

Please let Rev. Brian Marsh (Pastoral Lead), Hannah Gordon (MS Youth), or Laura Long (HS Youth) know if any of these requirements are an issue for your student.
