Some find Christ fills them with love and kindness Others give expression to prayer Others are inspired to sing, paint and dance Others find meaning in their life work Others are led to serve others Others lead unassuming lives but lives that are inspiring to those around them Others are comforted during times of sadness and loss Others become ministers Others are inspired to teach Others build united families and communities Everyone’s life can be influenced -Randy Johnson, former mentor
Through the Trinity confirmation experience, individuals “confirm” the promises made in faith at the time of their baptism. The program is designed to help students better understand how to keep these promises as they live as followers of Jesus Christ. Because of the sacrifice Christ has made on our behalf, choosing to follow Christ is the most important commitment to make. Confirmation is a significant step in one’s faith journey. Each of our confirmation requirements is designed to help students get to know God better and develop a lifestyle that will help them continue to grow spiritually. Participation in the confirmation program is a decision one should not take lightly as it affects the entire family. Confirmation is a voluntary program.
We assume that by enrolling, students and their families agree to ALL the requirements as stated in this booklet. Please understand that being in Trinity’s confirmation program is a commitment, much like that of a sports team.
Confirmation will look a little different this year. We will be taking this year to transition from a three-year confirmation program to a two-year program moving forward. This means that confirmation will look quite a bit different this year for those of you in grades 6-8. If you are in 6th grade, you can participate if you want to, but it’s not required. We will have a 45 minute in-person check-in class later in October to discuss how we will move forward with some in-person classes and online options. We will also need to move the night we hold confirmation to Monday or Tuesday evening this year. If you have a scheduling conflict those evenings that’s fine as I anticipate only meeting in-person a handful of times if possible. Beginning in the fall of 2021, confirmation will only include 7th and 8th grade students. 6th grade students will be involved in a leadership role for our Sunday school program in a sort of pre-confirmation way. Finally, any in-person confirmation activities will be optional this year.
