Confirmation is a public profession of faith by a student. It's the student's opportunity to say "YES!" to Christ. As United Methodists, we believe Confirmation is an opportunity to respond to the grace of God available to us by promising to live as a person of faith. "What God offers us must be accepted in repentance and faith" and "Confirmation and reaffirmation are our responses of commitment, profession of faith, and rededication" as stated in our Baptismal liturgy.
At Alliance UMC, Confirmation is a 10 week journey each spring for 8th grade students working with an adult mentor throughout the process. Registration is November 1 through December 15, 2017. Click here for the registration form. Confirmation classes will begin on Sunday, January 14, 2018.
