Confirmation Experience 4

KNOW - 9th Grade Learining Community

During this final leg of the journey we hope to combine past experiences with increased knowledge - moving our students from spiritual milk to solid food. This part of the process will take place during the Sunday School hour (9:30-10:30am) of a student’s 9th grade year and will cover a variety of discipleship topics - providing students with opportunities to deepen their understanding of spiritual truths, encouraging them to live out the things they know.   

Topics to be covered include:   
The Creator and His Creation
Jesus, Sin and Redemption
The Holy Spirit and a Fruitful Life
Spiritual Gifts
The Role of the Church  

Students will be encouraged to think deeply about each topic and to arrive at their own conclusions - making their faith their own. At various points during the year, students will be invited to step outside the Youth Center walls to visit Adult Sunday School classes - giving them a feel for what it looks like to be part of the larger church body, preparing them to grow deeper far beyond the boundaries of high school.  To obtain a schedule of when each topic will be taught, please contact Katherine Jordan at

Keep in mind, we are not having a Confirmation Sunday service at the end of this journey, and your child is not required to complete Confirmation before he/she joins the church.  When your child is ready to join the church, he/she will need to go through Discover Christ with the pastors.  Discover Christ is offered quarterly on Sunday afternoons.  To learn more about Discover Christ and when your child could make a public profession, contact Nancy Markovitz at
