CONFIRMATION 2013: Info for Confirmands + Ex-Cons

Many of you know that we have been polling parents of our rising 7th graders, confirmation leaders, and our FUMC staff to see if they would support our moving confirmation (Starting September 8th) to Sunday afternoons instead of where it has been (during Sunday school on Sunday mornings).  We proposed that this idea was not just change for the sake of change but a proposal designed to enhance your new 7th grade’s overall youth experience.  After collecting votes and feedback over the last month we have come to the conclusion that leaving Confirmation on Sunday mornings was the choice of a significant majority of parents and leaders. That being said, this is what Confirmation 2013 will look like:

  • Confirmation YOUTH classes begin Sunday, September 8th, 9:30 am in Bain Hall (can pick up youth in Bain Hall around 10:45 am)
  • Confirmation PARENT classes begin the same day  and time, but meet in the Multi Media room on the 2nd floor of the Hunter building (9:30-10:45 am)
  • The classes are part of a ten week process beginning  September 8 and continuing the nine following Sundays thru November 10.
  • Confirmands who have attended and participated in at least 8 of the 10 sessions will be confirmed on Sunday, November 10th in the 11:00 am traditional  worship service in the main sanctuary
  • This special service will be preceeded by a breakfast and final all together (parents and youth) session for the confirmation families on November 10, 9-10:30 am, in Bain Hall
