“Christians are made, not born” said Tertullian.
Confirmation is a historic means of making Christians. At Orleans United, youth who are interested in learning more about their faith and who are considering becoming Members of the United church of Canada are invited to participate in our Confirmation program.
Our confirmation program follows a model of mentorship and developing relationships with our youth as they grow in faith. Youth are paired with adult mentors to meet for a series of discussions – sometimes about the “big” questions, and sometimes about what’s happening in their lives and the world around them. There are also several group sessions with Rev. molly where you can always count on candy and laughter!
The usual time that youth choose to be confirmed is sometime between grade 7 to 9, but we have had youth in grade 5 through to grade 12 participate in the program. Typically the confirmation program begins in early January each year, with Confirmation taking place just after Easter. If you think you are someone you know might be intersted in Confirmation, please talk to Rev. Molly or leave your name with the office.
