Dear Eighth Grade Students and Parents,
Welcome to the Confirmation Journey! Confirmation literally means to “Make firm!" We approach this time as a family affair, and we have already been praying for each of you! As we travel through the next several months together, we will explore the baptismal vows proclaimed over each student as an infant, and/or equip each one to make a decision about being baptized, as each student will be invited to make a profession of Faith in Christ and become a member of the community of faith (the church).
While the students meet each month, Meg Procopio will lead a separate Parents' group. We will cover topics to help you facilitate conversation with your child, but we will be flexible enough to cover theological topics of interest - come with ALL your questions and let’s explore together.
THE BIBLE PROJECT
And for the whole family…a couple of times a month, you will receive a Bible Project video straight to your phone! This is a short video that compliments the monthly Confirmation lesson. These videos are amazing and pack a great punch to keep us all IN THE KNOW! This will be a great way to engage - we will all be Bible Scholars by April :)
PLEASE go ahead and put the dates listed below on your calendars. Our hope is that confirmation will be a top priority. This is a unique time that will not come again, so soak up all the love and intention offered. Please pray about this commitment and your ability to be fully available. Our expectation is that students will be present for 90% of the experience!
