Peoples Congregational United Church of Christ

Confirmation Program

 

Confirmation, the affirmation of baptism, is a rite of the Church that occurs during public worship.  When the youth of our Church reach adolescence (at or about age 12 or the 6th grade level), he/she is eligible for Confirmation.

 

During Confirmation, the participants (who are known as Confirmands) learn about the Christian faith.  Our Confirmation curriculum is designed to equip the Confirmands with an overall understanding of the Bible and its teachings; and to provide them with a foundation upon which to begin or continue their spiritual journey.  Upon completion of the class work and assignments of the Confirmands, there is a Service of Confirmation, which traditionally takes place on Pentecost Sunday, during the 11:00 a.m. Church Service.

 

During the Service of Confirmation, the Confirmands profess his/her willingness to affirm baptism and the congregation promises to be supportive of the Confirmands in their continuing journey of faith.  If baptism has not taken place, the Service of Confirmation includes a Service of Baptism.  Upon Confirmation, the Confirmands become full members of our Church.
