Confirmation meets on Sunday mornings at 9:45 am during the Program Year (beginning Sept. 24).
At University Presbyterian Church, youth (typically 8th graders) are invited to engage in a year of study before they join the church as a member. Over the course of this year, our youth learn what it means to be a member in a church and gain a foundational understanding of how the church has come to be and why that is relevant to their lives. Youth are encouraged to ask tough questions and learn how to sit with answers that are often not black and white. Our teachers are not experts but are fellow sojourners along the path of faith. Youth learn a great deal of information that aids them in faith formation and helps them build a vocabulary of faith so that they may speak their faith in a way that is authentic to their individual selves. In April, youth decide if they’d like to officially join the church and complete the Confirmation process, confirming the vows made on their behalf at baptism.
