Confirmation

"Now the word of the Lord came to me saying, 'Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.'"    Jeremiah 1:5

When we are young, our parents or grandparents usually bring us to church.  We learn from them and other adults what Christianity is all about.  Along the way we may have questions -- more and more questions.  We may want to explore other faith traditions -- after all, it's a big world.  And certainly we want to understand the Christian faith in a way that will make sense in adulthood.

That's what Confirmation is all about.  It's the time when we confirm the vows of baptism, say yes to being a disciple of Jesus, and affirm a faith of our own.

Here at St. Andrew, students who are eleven years or older may take part in Confirmation Class, which lasts most of a school year.   

Among other activities, our most recent class baked the Communion bread and served the sacrament, led the Youth Sunday service, and traveled to Arkansas on a mission trip with Heifer Project International.    

If you're interested in the next Confirmation Class, please let us know.  It might start you on the adventure of a lifetime.
