Confirming one’s faith is a personal choice, and demonstrates that a student wants to publicly share their faith in Jesus. If your student is in 9th grade and plans to confirm their faith this fall, please REGISTER for 2020 Confirmation so we can assist your student in completing required experiences PRIOR to Confirmation. These experiences are not a checklist, but are required so the student has the opportunity to know Jesus, their Circuit community, and explore questions and doubts before confirming their faith. These experiences include:
- The student has been baptized or will be prior to confirmation
- Regularly attend and actively participate at Circuit for 18+months prior to Confirmation (or approval of the youth director). Example, missing more than once / month on average is not considered regular attendance.
- Complete 1-weekend retreat prior to Confirmation. We know that COVID cancellations made this a challenge. If you did not complete this in grade 7 or 8, know that we are planning on a high school retreat Oct 30 – Nov 1, 2020. Registration will be available in September, 2020.
- Complete a faith statement and participate in a Faith Share event
Upon completing these experiences, students can choose to confirm their faith at a special Confirmation Service (9th grade or after). We welcome students to confirm their faith anytime after 9th grade. If your student is interested to take this important faith step, let us know and we would be happy to visit with them.
Post-confirmation, students are encouraged to continue joining us on Wednesdays for inspiring large group worship and small group discussions at Sr Circuit, and are invited to take a next step and become part of the Student Leadership team.
