2022 Confirmation

 
OPEN TO CURRENT 8TH GRADERS AND ANY HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS WHO HAVEN’T GONE THROUGH CONFIRMATION.
Confirmation is one of those rites of passage in a life of faith where young people are encouraged to dig into questions about life and life in the Presbyterian Church—even questions they didn’t know they had.
Confirmation this Spring will consist of 4 classes on Sundays in February from 11:30am to 1:00pm. Lunch will be provided! We will finish Spring Confirmation with a weekend retreat at John Knox Ranch.

“We can’t say for sure when the outside world will return to normal. So we thought it might be best to focus on the inner world of mental health. Today, let’s talk through a few goals we might carry into the new year to bolster us as parents and people.
Bonus: these are worthwhile goals for non-pandemic times as well.”
 
 
 
“Social media isn’t just a means to community in the eyes of a teen. It is community. When you choose to value community on their terms, you set yourself up as a guide for positive social media experiences. So we’re here to offer you a few do’s and don’ts for the road ahead.”
