Confirmation

Confirmation

ConfirmationConfirmation is primarily for those in the 6th grade, or any middle-schooler who has not gone through this process. Confirmation is that time in a person's life when he or she responds to God's grace with intentional commitment, publicly reaffirming his or her baptismal vows before the congregation.

At Westbury UMC, confirmation is highly encouraged! We kick off our season of intensive spiritual formation with a retreat, followed by a series of classes from 9:15 to 10:30 am on Sunday mornings. Our learning together is centered around the Credo curriculum. Students walk through the curriculum with several different guest teachers and our pastors. By the end, the goal is for each confirmand to:

  • Know Your Story... Encounter the faith narrative from creation to Christianity.
  • Confirm Your Faith... Embrace the essential beliefs and practices of The United Methodist Church.
  • Live Your Commitment... Embody the confirmation vows and embark on the Christian discipleship journey.

We typically celebrate the official confirmation of the students in our Easter worship service each spring. This milestone is of great spiritual significance to the individual and the entire congregation.

Hi. I see that you don't update your site too often. I know that writing content
is time consuming and boring. But did you know that there
is a tool that allows you to create new posts using existing content (from article directories or other blogs from your niche)?
And it does it very well. The new posts are high quality and pass the copyscape test.
You should try miftolo's tools

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout
of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got
to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only
having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
