Confirmation

Confirmation Ministry is a partnership between Confirmation leaders, parents, and baptismal sponsors in which we seek to help students grow in their faith. Salem’s Confirmation program is designed to prepare our young people to say “yes” to the promises made for them in their Baptism. The expectations of those participating in this program include: regular worship attendance, participation in Confirmation class, retreat/camp experiences, as well as service opportunities.

The summer after their 8th grade school year students are expected to attend Confirmation Camp. This experience is the culmination of the program and a chance for them to spend some time living their faith. Confirmation meets weekly at 6:30 p.m., Wednesdays during the school year. Youth activities are on-going year round.

Enrollment typically happens at the beginning of 6th grade. The program culminates with the Rite of Affirmation of Baptism during a worship service in the fall of 9th grade.

CONFIRMATION Needs

During Advent our confirmation students will be making small weighted blankets for young children to use at school.   In order to make these blankets we are looking for donation of the following items:

*Fleece (pieces must be a minimum of 15" x 20")

*Rice

*Tube socks

Donations can be left in the box outside Nicole's office!  Please drop donations no later than December 1st. activities or are also welcome to come up with their own.  Confirmation meets every Wednesday from 6:30- 8 pm.  All volunteers working with youth must agree to a background check, must complete an online youth safety, and provide Salem with three references.  Please contact Nicole if you are interested in helping nicole.erickson@slcsycamore.org
