The Confirmation program at Stanwich aims to educate, equip, and inspire students to know Christ and make Him known. This program is designed for eighth grade students, but the class is also open to any seventh graders who feel that they are ready and to high school students who may have missed an opportunity for confirmation as a younger student.
Confirmation is a 12-session program beginning in the Fall that occurs during the 10:45am Sunday worship service. Students enter the sanctuary with their families at 10:45am, then transition to the Student Space downstairs after the Children's sermon. Class concludes when the worship service concludes. The class is taught by Student Ministry Director Lance Svendsen and student ministry leaders.
The Confirmation students are required to attend a 2-night weekend retreat which enables the students to build relationships and to expand on what they learned in class.
