Confirmation is an important time in a youth’s life. During this time their family and congregation, who at their baptism took up the responsibility of nurturing them in faith, partner together to prepare them to affirm that Baptism. We welcome you to this ministry and we pray that this time is positive and life-shaping for your whole family.
Please note registration is a two step process:
- Completing registration materials (online or via paper form – download document below).
- Submitting payment via check to Bethel
Confirmation is structured chronologically according to a four year ministry time frame. Years are identified as follows:
Year One: Starts in the spring of 6th grade year and continues through that summer.
Year Two: Starts in the fall of the 7th grade year and continues through the summer following the 7th grade year.
Year Three: Starts in the fall of the 8th grade year and continues through the summer following the 8th grade year.
Year Four: Starts in the fall of the 9th grade year and continues through the early fall of the following year. This year includes taking part in the mentor ministry. (Click here for more information on the mentor ministry.)
Confirmation service is held the fall of the youth’s 10th grade year.
