The Confirmation Program called Passage at Bethany, involves a step by step preparation for a young person building an ethical foundation. Here, they take a step of faith and reach toward an adult status on their life journey. The program has evolved to meet the ever changing needs of our youth and families.
The Students begin in 7th Grade and must:
1.Attend fourteen (14) events scheduled over a 2 year period
2.Regularly attend worship / complete twenty (20) sermon notes
3.Volunteer to serve at worship (usher, greeter, lector, acolyte, or as a Adventure Island assistant)
4.Take an oral test each year with the Pastor on:
The Ten Commandments (Small Catechism) in Order The Apostle’s Creed
The Lord’s Prayer
The Great Commandment
The Great Commission
Their Personal Bible Verse
The Books of the New Testament
5.Choose the date, in 8th or 9th Grade, to affirm their faith in October, January, or May/June.
