BIRMINGHAM UMC CONFIRMATION 2021-2022

WHAT IS CONFIRMATION?

Confirmation is a program for students to study & discover a knowledge of the Christian story, our core beliefs & practices, and an understanding of the United Methodist doctrine to affirm faith and ensure a strong foundation in Jesus Christ. 

WHO CAN ATTEND?

This year, confirmation is open to any middle school students (6th through 8th grade). 

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?

**See below for key dates through the confirmation program. It will kick off on September 19th at 4P.M. and conclude on Confirmation Sunday when the students officially join the church on Sunday, March 20th. 

**Generally the class will meet on Sunday evenings at 4P.M. (except for holidays weekends and school breaks). Confirmands are allowed two absences but otherwise need to commit to being there every Sunday. 

**There is also a parent class that will meet once a month at the same time to help parents equip their confirmands at home to continue the conversations. 

**Confirmands will be matched with a mentor from the congregation, as well as a high school student mentor as well.
