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
- Submitting payment to Bethel
Pizza will be served on Confirmation evenings @ 5:15 p.m.

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.)

God has made a promise for your life that lasts forever through Jesus Christ. A Faith Project is a great opportunity to reflect on how God has called, gathered and enlightened you in the faith throughout your time in our confirmation ministry.
The “project” is an expression of your faith in a way that relates to you, and an opportunity to see the connections between your faith and your passions in a way that applies to your life.

There is no correct Faith Project
Some youth prefer to write a 2-3 page Faith Paper, but there are many ideas that may be more personal and reflective. The goal is to create a project that reveals your relationship with God
