20-21 Confirmation Registration
Here at the Kirk, those who are in or have completed 8th grade, are invited to join our Confirmation class for the duration of the Christian education year. Confirmation is a special time when each youth has the opportunity to carefully reflect on and explore their personal faith. At the end of the Confirmation year, youth are asked if they are prepared to affirm the baptismal vows made by their parents on their child’s behalf, claiming Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. For youth who are not Baptized, it is an opportunity to make their own profession of faith and be Baptized. Confirmation is an exciting journey in a youth’s faith life and I hope you will consider signing up for our 2018-2019 class!

Confirmation will meet on Sunday mornings from 9:45am – 10:45am, following the church-wide Sunday school schedule. Participating in Confirmation class includes attending a required number of classes, spending time with a mutually agreed upon mentor (who is an adult member of the church), completing in and out of class assignments, participating in two confirmation retreats (in October and April), and participating in at least two service activities with your mentor. You will also be provided with a copy of “The Jesus Creed for Students” (Scot McKnight) to read in preparation for Confirmation. This easy to read book will help you to begin thinking about your faith in a new way and help to guide our discussions next year!

Important *TENTATIVE* dates for you to note for your confirmation year:

First class – Sunday, September 13
Fall Retreat to Washington, D.C. – Thursday, October 22 (after school) – Sunday, October 25
Spring Retreat (at the Kirk) – Friday, March 26-Saturday, March 27
Examination with Session – Sunday, April 11 (12:30pm-2:30pm)
Confirmation Sunday – Sunday, April 25 (both worship services with breakfast at 9:45am)

You will note that there is a retreat to Washington, D.C. in October. This has been planned to follow the WCPSS traditional calendar and we will leave Thursday afternoon, with Friday being a workday. In your confirmation registration, I do ask for you to let me know if your child will go to DC. This is so we can fulfill our requirements for registration with our partner in DC. It is important that I know by May 31. There is a cost of $250 per person, but please do not let this hold you back! We have scholarships available and I do not want money to be the reason any confirmand misses this trip. This weekend in our nation’s capital will be a weekend of service, fellowship, worship, and group formation – it is important that as many of our confirmands go as possible! As a parent, if you would like to go as a chaperone (cost covered by Kirk Youth Ministry), please let me know.

As you and your youth consider participating in Confirmation next year, please feel free to contact me (jdavis@kirkofkildaire.org, 919-467-4944) with any questions.
