Confirmation


Welcome to Confirmation!

Confirmation is an optional two-year learning experience for students in grades 7 and 8. It’s full of hands-on Bible time, large and small group activities, food, spiritual practices, servant opportunities, retreats, and more.  It’s both serious and silly, fun and faithful, relational and relevant, formed around the promises made in Baptism. In fact, the Rite of Confirmation is officially titled “The Affirmation of Baptism.” This is the time your student gets to say, ‘You know what? All that stuff that my parents promised when I was baptized? I totally believe it!’ We hope you and your student will participate!

As of today, this year’s class will all be in-person only. You will be able to submit up to 5 sermon notes for online worship this year.

You do not need to be a member of Trinity to attend Confirmation classes.
