A welcoming and inclusive Christian community
for sixth through twelfth graders!
Confirmation (Grade 8)
The confirmation program at Fourth Church is an opportunity for eighth graders to explore their faith in preparation for church membership through confirmation. Any and all eighth graders are always welcome to attend, regardless of their relationship with Fourth Church.
The confirmation program seeks to lay a foundation of faith and trust in God that will help eighth graders throughout the challenging and exciting years of high school and beyond. The bonds of fellowship and fun provide each young person with values, goals, and friendships that will last a lifetime.
Over the course of the year, the basics of Christian faith are discussed and applied to real life. After they have completed the program, we hope that youth will have a deeper sense of how faith and life intersect in meaningful ways.
This is accomplished through a combination of pastoral guidance and small group interaction led by adult volunteers. Through weekly meetings (Sundays from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon), participation in worship, visits to other churches and religious communities, retreats, and fellowship, we hope to raise up our church’s next generation in the faith of generations past, present, and future.
