Confirmation

Attention ALL CONFIRMANDS (AND PARENTS) !

There will be an orientation meeting for confirmation students and parents on Wednesday, September 5th at 7:00 pm. Curriculum, schedules, responsibilities and opportunities will be outlined that evening. The meeting is for both first and second year students. Please make every effort to attend. Confirmation instruction will then begin with weekly sessions on Wednesday afternoons after school. Our students usually arrive around 3:40 PM and we wrap up at 5:15 PM. We welcome any and all from the community who would like to sit in or any of our sessions. As we have noted in past articles, if you know of someone in the seventh grade or higher who might enjoy participating in our confirmation program, please contact Pastor Dan!

 

CONFIRMATION INSTRUCTION – FIRST CALL

Pastor Dan has recently sent letters to the families of those who are of age to begin confirmation instruction this coming fall. Our incoming (first year) students should be entering seventh grade in September. If you did not receive a letter already and have a student entering the seventh grade, please contact the church office as soon as possible. Remember also that confirmation instruction is not limited to members of Zion Church. If you have relatives, neighbors or friends who might be interested in confirmation instruction, please let us know!

 

Confirmation Recess

Confirmation instruction is suspended now for the summer months and will start up again on Wednesday, September 5th.  Confirmation instruction is offered to those in 7th and 8th grades in school, and to any others who would like to participate.  Pastor Dan will be contacting our incoming 7th graders and families this summer.  If you have a student who is not in those grades but who would like to participate, please contact Pastor Dan or the church office. CD’s with the day’s pictures are still available for pick-up by confirmand families after the service today. Students please remember to pick up your bibles and study materials as well! After this weekend, please see Laura in the office.
