I’m excited to announce that we will be having confirmation classes this fall. The classes will be held weekly on Wednesdays, ending on November 4. Then, the Confirmation Service will be on November 15 at the 10:30 a.m. Worship Service.

The weekly sessions will be using the Book Of Common Prayer Catechism as a framework, and will include a video. We will also be using the New City Catechism for a question and answer time during our sessions. Many of the candidates will have cell phones and can download the free New City Catechism app for either iOS or Android here:

We will be doing 7 questions, in order, per week from the New City Catechism. I will go over the first 7 during the first class, and show them how it works.

There is also a web app for doing this on your computer:

There will be notes provided to the students for our weekly sessions, as well as copies of the memorization work (see below).

Requirements For Confirmation

  1. Class attendance is required. 🙂
  2. Memorization: Each candidate will be expected to memorize the Ten Commandments, The Lord’s Prayer, and the Apostles Creed. There is a simplified 10 Commandments below for the memorization. 🙂
  3. Candidates are encouraged to attend the weekly worship service.

Please contact me directly if you have any questions.

Some questions about the video:

Can life feel so overwhelming at times that we feel like we are “drowning”? How does having God as our Father help us to fear him, rather than circumstances? What happens when we are baptized? How is what happens to the girl “like a baptism”? Did anything change after she came out of the water? Should our lives change when we are baptized/become a part of God’s family/come to know there is a God? Should we “fear God”? If so, why? If not, why not? How can fearing God, knowing God for who He actually is lead to a better life, a secure life, a life without fear?
