Confirmation at PCCT is a nine-month program of learning, service, and participation in the worshipping life of our congregation. Participants typically are in the ninth grade and attend Sunday morning classes (9:15-11:45 am two or three times per month), complete a total of 10 hours of service on church related projects, attend three retreats, complete a worship journal and write a statement of faith at the end of the year.
The confirmation program is designed to: Prepare young people to become adult members of the church; enable them to make a public profession of faith; and invite them to complete the vows made by their parents at the time of their baptisms.
At the Presbyterian Church of Chatham Township, Confirmation provides a variety of learning, reflection and service experiences designed to nurture young people in three areas:
Faith – wrestling with questions about the nature and existence of God as revealed in Jesus Christ
Action – loving our neighbors through acts of compassion and service
Commitment – receiving God’s freely given love, accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and choosing to pursue God’s call on their lives.
