Confirmation Classes Begin Sunday, February 5th

This year's Confirmation classes will begin on February 5, 2023. Our church has traditionally held Confirmation for 6th-grade students. However, last year we started a new tradition of Confirmation. From now on, Confirmation classes will be held for 8th-grade students. Although, these classes are intended for 8th-grade students all youth interested are welcome to attend. If you have questions or would like to join email Tori at [email protected]

For more information, please read the attached letter we are sending out to all parents/guardians of 8th grade students.
