Confirmation for 2023-2024 is now in session!

6:00-7:45 pm, most Wednesday evenings throughout the school year
Open to 6th, 7th, and 8th graders  

Confirmation is an educational ministry of our church designed to help all baptized members grow in their faith. Confirmation begins at Baptism…and lasts a lifetime!
Public affirmation of baptism in the rite of confirmation marks the entry of the confirmands into full membership in the congregation, typically at the end of the student’s 8th grade year.

2022 Confirmands

Affirmation of Baptism is not an end to instruction and participation in church life. In fact, affirmation is a new beginning in your own commitment to Christ and your baptismal covenant. Once you are confirmed, you accept responsibility for your behavior and Christian witness in the church community and the world. You will be responsible for continuing your education and stewardship (giving of time, talents, and financial resources).

Confirmation participants are expected to be involved members of the Bay View community. While most events are scheduled to take place on Wednesday night from 6:00-7:45, there are other times & dates involved as well. Communication of dates and events will be given  as far in advance as possible. Everyone’s active participation is an important part of Confirmation!

Affirmation of Baptism will be celebrated on Sunday, May 19th at the 9:15 worship service.
