What is Confirmation
For United Methodists, Confirmation is a public COVENANT agreement a baptized person makes with God in the presence of family, friends and members of the church. We call those being Confirmed “Confirmands.” Confirmands promise - or “Confirm” - to uphold the vows of their Baptism, with the help and support of the congregation; and they affirm that they will participate as a member in the ministries of the Church.
As Confirmation is a path to joining the universal Body of Christ and your local church, United Methodist churches offer “Confirmation Classes” to help prepare young people to (1) articulate what they believe as they (2)profess their Faith and (3) Confirm their commitment to living according to their belief in God the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.
St. John’s Ivyland will be offering Confirmation Classes for young people in the 7th Grade and older. First Meeting is November 19 @ 11:45 am in Youth Room
