Here We Stand

Here We Stand: Grades 6-8


Wednesdays, 6-7:30 p.m.


Confirmation is a time of great connection! Confirmation equips youth with the teachings of the Bible and faith so they can make an informed decision to live out their life of faith.

Here We Stand Confirmation accomplishes these things through a variety of ways:

  • Large Group – students will learn from the Children, Youth, & Family (CYF) Innovator about Biblical stories and faith history and practices. We then explore how it connects to us personally today and the difference our faith makes in our lives and in our world.
  • Small Group – students will connect with their peers and caring adults. In small group, they will build safe and life-long relationships through sharing life, exploring the personal side of faith, practicing care and prayer for one another and more!
  • Fellowship & Service – Youth will also have times of fellowship (such as bonfires, retreats, lock-in, etc.) and service projects (such as Feed My Starving Children, Food Shelf Collections, Trunk n Treat, etc.).
