Youth_Confirmation_doveOur 2017-2018 Confirmation class will meet Sunday mornings in Room 119 at 9:30 a.m. to 10:25 a.m. beginning in Sunday, February 11 with completion and Confirmation celebration on Pentecost Sunday, May 20, 2018. All are welcome to a celebration in honor of our confirmands immediately following the 10:30 worship service.

This class is open to youth in 7th and 8th grade who are interested in learning more about the Christian faith.

The Hinsdale UMC Confirmation Program supports our 7th and 8th grade students in their decision to become members of this congregation. Confirmation classes explore the foundations of our faith through the lens of United Methodist history and heritage while comparing and contrasting our beliefs and practices to those of other world religions.

Confirmation is a big step in the journey of these young people, during which they openly profess their faith in Christ, commit to being responsible disciples, and become recognized as adult members of the church. To support our youth during this journey, each Confirmand is paired with an adult mentor who together meet regularly throughout the year. This year we will not only have adult confirmation mentors, we will also have junior confirmation mentors. (High school students who have completed confirmation will be invited to share their stories of their faith journey with younger peers.)

We are blessed by and thankful for each confirmation class!
