Youth have the opportunity to explore their faith and articulate what they believe. The exploration process includes learning more about scripture, the story of Methodism, how the church functions, and to begin wrestling with questions of faith that will be a part of their journey throughout adulthood. Retreats, group time, mentors, prayer partners, family, service projects, and field trips all play their role. At the end of the process, each youth will compose a statement of faith that will be shared on a special Confirmation Sunday. On that Sunday, they will also be given the opportunity to become members of the church. The youth are asked to confirm, not to conform, and on that Sunday, the congregation will have the opportunity to affirm them wherever they may be at on their journey.
