Confirmation is traditionally the time in the life of a youth when they look closely at what it means to be a Christian in general, to be a United Methodist, in particular, and to be a member of Los Gatos UMC specifically. It is a great time to explore their faith, grapple with some of the tough questions facing them, and their generation (and facing all people of faith) and to get to know themselves and their church a bit better. The word “confirmation” is used because for students who are baptized as infants or children, this class invites them to decide whether to “confirm” the vows made on their behalf at their baptism.
Students do not have to decide about church membership prior to joining the confirmation class. In fact, we would prefer that they come with an open mind. Ready to explore the issues and learn more, but waiting to make their final decision about membership until they have taken part in the class.
Confirmation classes will be held on Sunday evenings 6:00-7:30 p.m. at a date to be determined.
We already have two students interested, please let me know if your youth are interested via email Kids@LGUMC.org.
