Education & Enrichment
for Youth

Confirmation is an awesome time in your life. It’s your chance to learn about the faith you were baptized into, and affirm (celebrate) that faith. We do everything we can to make sure that confirmation is an adventure, and that it helps you make friends, and feel closer to God and meet Jesus. Here are the list of expectations we have of you to ensure that confirmation is an exciting and enriching experience:
• Participate in Wednesday worship with your
   family (6-6:45pm)
• Go deeper with your small groups and at the
   closing large group gathering (6:45-8)
• Attend Sunday morning confirmation every other
   Sunday for Service Learning Projects
• Daily bible reading, prayer, and activities (use the
   weekly Taking Faith Home hand-out from the
   bulletin as your family guide, or the Faith Five
   structure as a devotional practice)
• Acolyte and Wednesday ushering
• Servant events (held periodically throughout
   the year)
• Spend time with your parents (and listen to them)

The most important call that God gives to parents is their call to model, teach, and participate in the faith life of their children (Proverbs 22, Deuteronomy 4:10, 2 John 1:4). If your children have been baptized and/or if you desire lives of faith in your children, you as parents and we as a Christian community have entered into that exciting promise to them. Your children learn most from what you role model. They watch what your do. Here are a list of hopes I have for how you will participate in confirmation this next year.

• Attend Wednesday or Sunday worship with your
• Home huddles (a great way to grow together –
   use Taking Faith Home as the basis for your
   prayers, bible reading, and activities)
• Personal bible study and prayer (your child will
   learn more by watching you read the bible than
   they ever will hearing pastors and other leaders
   talk about it; you might even consider
   participating in an adult small group bible study
• Service together (as people of faith, we are called
   to work for justice and peace in the world; is there
   some way your family is called to serve the
   neighbor together?)
• Assist as parent helper/small group leader or
   sub/special event coordinator
• Spend time with your child
• Spending time with family was listed as the
   number one thing that makes young people
   happy, followed by spending time with friends.
• 73% said their relationship with their parents
   make them happy.
• When asked about heroes, half mentioned one of
   their parents.
• Nearly half say religion and spirituality are very
   important to their happiness.
