— Confirmation Class —
The purpose of Confirmation Class in the United Methodist Church is to prepare young people for the responsibilities of full membership in the local church by helping them understand what it means to be a Christian, and particularly what it means to be a United Methodist Christian. Through field trips, activities, readings, and discussions with the pastor, mentors, parents and/or guardians, members of the congregation and other young people, students will study the Bible, the history and tradition of the Christian Church, the history and tradition of the United Methodist Church and the history of their local church.
Classes started in January 2017. Youth are paired with mentors for the class led by Pastor Tom Stinson-Wesley. There is a Confirmation Retreat to Lake Junaluska in the spring.
