All youth at the 8th
level (or above if they were not confirmed) are invited to attend Confirmation
on Sunday nights from 5-6:30PM in the Sacred Grounds Coffee House on the Alpine
Campus (Door #5). Confirmation Class
will use Confirm curriculum from Cokesbury as our foundation, but the
class will be taught using active learning, games, video, discussion and
snacks. Everyone learns better when they
enjoy the learning experience. Learning
about one’s faith should be a joy not a chore.
Confirmation is a time for
the youth to learn what it means to live into their faith:
do this by holding each other accountable to attend class each week.
They agree to
attend worship as often as they are able, at least twice a month, and they
celebrate their time in worship by taking a Worship Selfie that is posted on
the Selfie Wall. Some Worship Selfies
are worth 2 points and others 3 depends on who and how many they managed to get
in the selfie with them. Each week in
Confirmation the Confirmands share their Selfie stories.
Class will choose a Mission Project for the year. It will come from a need they identify, and
it will be something they undertake to help. It can be a global, national, or
will visit 2 other houses of worship from the Rockford area and worship with
them, to better understand what it means to love God in an ecumenical and
Each week there
will be discussions on Scripture, Christianity, and specifically United
Methodist doctrine, and how it all relates to the world today. Specifically,
how it relates to the youth today.
