Adult Confirmation

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

Registration is open for the 2020 class.
Sundays, February 9 - April 26, 2020
10:00 AM, Green Room
The service for Adult Confirmation is Sunday, May 17, 2020 at 8:30 AM.
Please note: No classes on Palm Sunday (April 5) and Easter Sunday (April 12).

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 ten weeks on Sundays, February 9 - April 26 at 10:00 AM. Confirmation will be held at Christ Church on Sunday, May 17. 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. Please note: Classes will not be held Palm Sunday (April 5) and Easter Sunday (April 12).

Pre-registration is required. Register here
