Are you an 8th-12th grade student ready to grow deeper in your faith? Decide to take the step of Confirmation this year!
Confirmation is the time when a personal decision is made to confirm the vows of our baptism. At Legacy, this happens as a group of students join together to explore who Christ is, what it means to know Him through a life-long relationship, and how we follow Him as United Methodists.
Those wishing to be confirmed must:
- be active in Student Ministries (Sundays, Wednesday nights, special events, service projects, etc)
- attend the spring Confirmation classes and weekend retreat
- participate in Confirmation Sunday in April
The Confirmation Ceremony is a public affirmation for a student to confirm their faith as their own. The student is taking responsibility for living as a member of the body of Christ and for fulfilling God’s purposes. This includes the building of relationships with peers and adults who will support them in their faith.
Confirmation is not simply a “rite of passage” or graduation from church. Nor, just a class to complete. It is a step in a life-long journey of pursuing the heights, depths, and widths of God’s love and making a vow to live in relationship with Him for the rest of your life! Being confirmed at Legacy UMC makes you a member of this church; taking the membership vows to practice Radical Hospitality, Extravagant Generosity, Passionate Worship, Authentic Faith Sharing, Intentional Faith Development and Risk-Taking Mission and Service.
Confirmation is a great way to reaffirm your baptism and make your faith your own!
