The summer before 10th grade, confirmation students are matched with a mentor. Mentors and students worship and serve together that summer and fall, reflecting together about what it means to be a disciple of Jesus.
Affirmation Of Baptism
To prepare confirmation students to affirm their baptism during the fall of their 10th grade year, the students spend a Saturday morning with the pastors reviewing their confirmation experience and talking about how they might use their gifts as a disciple of Jesus. They rehearse the Affirmation of Baptism service, and then spend the afternoon together at lunch and bowling. Good luck trying to beat Pastor Julie! The actual Affirmation of Baptism service is usually the next day. If you have any questions about the confirmation program at Grace, please e-mail Pastor Julie or Pastor Larry at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org .
