Confirmation is a time when we explore our faith through weekly meetings and other activities to learn more about Jesus and make a deeper commitment of being a disciple of Christ.  This will also be a time for you to decide whether to join the church and/or be baptized (if you haven’t already been baptized).  It is also a time when you learn more about the United Methodist Church.

Confirmation Class is offered on Sunday afternoons from 3:30-5:00pm. Please contact Minister of Discipleship, Edward Ramsey if you are interested in finding out more about Confirmation.
