Confirmation is an exciting time in the life of our congregation’s 8th graders! Confirmands join other young people for Youth Gathering on Sunday morning. Then they meet in the Loft from 10:30-11:15 a.m. for an in-depth exploration of what it means to live into the baptismal covenant. Each Confirmand is paired with a Confirmation Mentor who walks with them throughout the yearlong confirmation journey — providing spiritual, emotional and practical support along the way.
This year Confirmands will join the leadership team for the second annual day-long Confirmation Retreat on Sunday, November 10, 11:15 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. We will use our historic worship spaces as tools to help reflect on Christian life and practice. Our time together will conclude with a trip to Broad Street Ministry where we will also get to take part in their 4:00 p.m. worship service.
Family Video Discussion Guide & Questions
BMPC’s Confirmation curriculum includes videos that accompany each lesson. These videos provide a helpful entry point into theological discussion and formation for youth and families who are committed to exploring the ins-and-outs of the Christian Faith. Confirmands are expected to watch the following videos and discuss the accompanying questions with their families by the assigned dates.
All Confirmation videos, forms and schedules can be found in the “For Mentors & Families” Google Drive. The link will be sent to all of you at the beginning of the Confirmation year. Access the drive here.
