Welcome to Confirmation!  Confirmation is a time to prepare for the moment you will stand up in front of friends, family, and our church and say:

"Yes, I believe!".  We meet on Wednesday nights at 6:00 PM in the Fellowship Hall during the school year..  During that time you will:  

learn what the church believes

talk about what your family believes

listen to what your friends in Confirmation believe

and think about what YOU believe.
