Confirmation is open to all high school-aged students. The program usually lasts 6-7 months and is led by Scott Hodsdon. There are three components to the Confirmation program: working with mentors, visiting other places of worship, and a weekend service trip in Boston, serving the City Mission Society of Boston. The City Mission arranges a service project that will focus on the educational, economic or social needs of those in the city.
Confirmation students are asked to select a mentor - an adult in our faith community with whom they can develop a relationship that will create opportunities for students to question, clarify and confirm their faith. Mentors may not be parents of current confirmation students. Students and mentors meet monthly. Each mentor gathering will meet after worship and concentrate on a theme.
In order to define themselves in the context of organized religion, other places of worship are visited. Each visit begins with a conversation with leaders from that particular community of faith. There is always the opportunity to ask questions.
At the last gathering with mentors, students will present their faith journeys. Each will be unique and reflective of their own experience in Confirmation. There will be a special "Confirmation Sunday" on May 7th. This will complete the program. Following service, there will be a breakfast for our confirmation class, mentors and family members, following service.
