CONFIRMATION CLASS 2018
WHAT IS CONFIRMATION?
Confirmation is a time for our youth to decide to follow Christ and to understand the direction He has for his/her life. Confirmation is also a time for our students to affirm the faith into which they were baptized, renew the baptismal vows taken for them by their parents or guardians, and for those who were not baptized as infants or small children an opportunity to be baptized. And finally, Confirmation affirms a new commitment between a young person and Christ and also confirms their commitment to the United Methodist Church becoming members of Valdosta First United Methodist Church.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE IN CONFIRMATION?
Confirmation is available for all 6th grade students and any 7th & 8th grade students who have not participated in Confirmation Class before.
*Parents are to attend the classes with their Confirmand(s).
