Our Sunday School overflows with energy and enthusiasm as children learn through activities that teach the Bible, Christian faith, and how spiritual lessons apply to their daily lives.

Confirmation prepares young and older adults for membership in the Church. Confirmation completes the process which, for many, began when they were baptized. It gives young adults the opportunity to accept for themselves the promises their parents made for them at baptism. Classes start in September and Confirmands may pick a mentor of their choice. View our calendar for the next Confirmation class schedule.

Contacts: Rev. Timothy Haut, Rev. Dr. Cheryl Caronna, Sybil Higgins, Chelsea Chiappa Ehmke

Preparing Your Faith Statement

Every Confirmand is asked to prepare a Faith Statement as a culmination of their Confirmation experience. A Faith Statement is an expression of what faith means to you.

Take time to plan and work on your Faith Statement so it is meaningful to you. Think of your hobbies or interests, and work with your mentor to prepare your presentation. You will have the opportunity to present your Faith Statement at the Confirmation luncheon and they will be on display for Confirmation Sunday.

Creative ideas for your Faith Statement:

  • Poem
  • Letter
  • Painting
  • Shadow box
  • Family collage
  • PowerPoint
  • Musical presentation
  • Song or Dance
  • Lyrical or Instrumental composition
