What is Confirmation?
When our young Mungarians leave our church and graduate from high school, we want them to be filled with love, eager to serve, and confident in their faith. Confirmation is one of the things to we do to prepare our young people for the wider world.
It is a year-long program in which we tackle the hard questions about the faith (“How can we know there is a God? Can we really trust the Bible? How does prayer work?” etc.) in an environment specifically designed for 6th-8th graders in a way that encourages openness and curiosity.
Who can participate?
Any 6th through 8th grader that has not already participated in the program may register. Attendance will be tracked throughout the year and all participants will be required to make at least 75% of the program to be confirmed on May 17.
Do we have to be Mungarians for our middle schooler to participate?
No, and friends are welcome to attend with your student! (We take the attendance requirement seriously, though, so be sure you can commit to being there on a weekly basis.)
When does it start and end?
It begins September 13-15 with a special Kickoff Retreat. It ends with a special evening Confirmation ceremony on May 17.
For the weeks in between, Confirmation meets most Sunday mornings at 11AM in the Ed building basement.
Does it cost anything?
Yes. The cost is $25 for the year and is used towards t-shirts, the retreat, a bible, and other fun things for the confirmands.
Do I need a Bible?
Yes, but we don't expect anyone to go out and buy one if they don't have one already. We would be happy to provide a bible if needed!
What if I'm not sure what I believe?
We definitely want you to join us! Confirmation is meant to help young people just like you! The typical questions young people are wrestling with are definitely going to be covered.
