Confirmation begins Sunday, August 11 at 9:45 a.m. with a covenant worship service and orientation for parents and students. Confirmation is for middle school students who are interested in affirming their faith in Jesus and becoming full members of Asbury UMC, typically 6th graders but open to 7th and 8th graders as well.
The most important aspect of confirmation is making a public profession of faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. The second most important aspect of confirmation is taking a vow to be faithful to Christ and His Church and supporting it with our prayers, presence, gifts, services and witness. At the end of the class the student will decide whether or not he or she is spiritually and emotionally prepared to make his/her profession of faith in Jesus Christ.
