What does it mean to be "Confirmed?"
"Confirmed" indicates that a person has undergone laying on of hands by an Episcopal Bishop in a congregational worship service. When someone has been confirmed in another Episcopal congregation, a letter of membership can be transferred from the previous congregation.
When someone has been confirmed by a Bishop in the Catholic, Lutheran or Eastern Orthodox Church, that person can be received by an Episcopal Bishop in a service.
ADULT Confirmation and Inquirers Class
Sundays, February through April (10 weeks)
10:00 AM, Green Room
The service for Adult Confirmation is Sunday, May 19, 2019 at 8:30 AM.
This class is offered for any adult who wishes to be confirmed in the Episcopal Church, or who simply wants to explore what we believe and the basics of faith.
What does the class cover?
The class explores the basics of Christianity: God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, the sacraments, the Bible, The Book of Common Prayer, history of the Christian Church and being an Episcopalian. The class also addresses the way the Episcopal Church lives out that basic faith through worship, Bible study and service to others. Christ Church clergy teach the classes. Everyone is welcome and questions are encouraged.
When will the classes meet?
Sessions will be held for nine weeks on Sundays, February 10 - April 7 at 10:00 AM. Confirmation will be held at Christ Church on Sunday, May 19. If you are unable to be confirmed that day, we can make arrangements for you to be confirmed at a different church or next year when the Bishop visits.
Pre-registration is required. The 2019 class is already in progress.
