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 Countryside Mission Statement, the Phoenix Affirmations, and the 8 Points of Progressive Christianity as guides) and a member of the United Church of Christ.
Classes meet on Sunday from 4-5pm and Thursday from 5-6pm during the school year.
If you have any questions, please email Rebecca Morello or call the church Office: 402-391-0350.

After completing the Confirmation Program, the congregation welcomes students as new members of Countryside. This ceremony is part of the worship on the Sunday April 23, 2023.
