Confirmation

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 -Written by 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.

Wednesdays   Grades :  6th  & 7th  6-7pm , 8th  grade 7-8pm.

Please call the church office at 651-674-7047 or email Pastor Jon at pastor@trinitynorthbranch.org with any questions

2017 – 2018 Confirmation Calendar

6th & 7th Grade Confirmation

Confirmation focuses on the fundamentals of faith: becoming familiar with the Bible, Sacraments, the Ten Commandments, Apostle’s Creed and the Lord’s Prayer, while also focusing on personal faith development.

The program involves large group teaching and small group interaction and fellowship opportunities through weekly social interaction. Confirmation is a great way to explore the basics of the Christian faith while having fun and meeting new people.

Confirmation is for students grades 6-7 (8th grade see below) and meets Wednesday evenings from 6:00-7:00pm in the Sanctuary. The program runs from September to May. Confirmation will take a family focus during Lent in order to give families time to worship together.

Expectations for those involved in Confirmation:

To confirm your faith in Jesus Christ, you need to Learn It, Live It & Believe It! The confirmation expectations are designed to deepen and grow your faith. By completing the goals in each category you will not only deepen your relationship with Christ, but also develop a greater understanding of the whole church. 6th & 7th graders are required to attend an overnight retreat in the fall. The retreat cost is included in your confirmation cost.
