We United Methodist Christians practice and encourage baptism of infants and young children. At baptism we are born in a very particular way into the family of God. We are incorporated into God’s promise of love and forgiveness and acceptance, now and forever in heaven, through Jesus Christ.
Confirmation classes are offered each year for both those young people who are ready to take personal responsibility for the vows made on their behalf at their baptism and also for those young people who have not yet been baptized.
In general, young people who are at least 12 years old, are invited to participate in confirmation classes. However, age is not as important as the readiness of each person.
Following completion of classes, confirmands come forward during our Confirmation Sunday worship service, and offical profess and confirm their faith in Chirst and offically join our church.
