The God We Covenant With
Our goal for this gathering is to develop a better understanding of and deeper appreciation for the promises encountered on Confirmation Sunday. Even though we are over two years away from this day, we want to begin with the end in mind. Before you go further, offer a prayer inviting God to open your heart and mind to the words we will read.

As we begin, a United Methodist understanding of baptism puts the emphasis on God. God says “Yes!” to us in our baptism. God says yes to claiming us as part of God’s family and yes to calling us beloved in God’s sight. In confirmation, the emphasis is on the confirmand returning their “Yes!” to God’s “Yes!” found in our baptism. Mentors, parents, family, friends, and the church give confirmands the strength to live out this “Yes!” each day. We cannot be Christian by ourselves. We need God and one another!
