Youth Release Forms

Each year we ask for an updated form. Before you attend your first youth group event, please fill out this form.

Confirmation

Confirmation is a program available to students entering grades 8-12. This program begins in early October and concludes in late March.  There are several components of Confirmation designed help a student ask big questions and explore a life of Christian faith. At the end of Confirmation, each student will have the opportunity to join the church as a member if they so choose. It is okay if they don’t feel ready to join at the end of the program. Discerning values and beliefs and hopes and dreams is a life-long project that doesn’t end just because one has walked through the Confirmation process. Our hope and prayer is that each student finds a life of faith that energizes their lives and engages our world.
