Confirmation is a two-year educational program designed to prepare 7th and 8th grade students for their lifelong faith journey. The curriculum aims to help youth develop a deeper understanding of what it means to be a Christian (using the Phoenix Affirmations as a guide) and a member of the United Church of Christ.
Confirmation meets on Wednesday nights 6:30-7:30 during the school year.

Your Faith Story
During the confirmation process, students take notes to remember key points in their spiritual journey. As confirmation Sunday approaches, they compile these notes, with assistance from teachers, to write about where they are in their faith journey.
Dinner with the Deacons
Students who wish to be confirmed attend an annual dinner that gives the Deacons an opportunity to get to know the soon-to-be-newly confirmed members of our community. This is the third Tuesday of April.
Confirmation Sunday is the last Sunday in April at the 11:00 service
