Welcome to the next step on the journey.

Welcome to the journey! Confirmation is a special and unique opportunity in youth ministry. Here we get to wrestle with some of the big questions and foundations of our faith. Any question you may have or that comes up please feel free to ask, that’s what confirmation is for. You will not leave this class knowing everything, and we expect you to keep asking questions when we’re done. This is only the beginning of a life long journey of developing your faith and putting it into action. If we don’t know the answer to something, we’ll tell you, and we will wrestle with you to find an answer.

We want confirmation to be a time where you not only begin to decide what you believe for yourself but also a time where you can connect with a body of believers and find support. Open up to your small group, get to know one another, they are your fellow travelers on this journey.

One helpful thing we can tell you is that the more you put into your time in confirmation, the more you will get out of it. So, don’t be afraid to dive in with both feet.

Welcome to the next step of the journey. We are glad you are along for the adventure.

Sincerely,

Marcus McClellan
Director of Youth Ministries
West Market Street UMC
