Confirmation / Membership
Confirmation / membership is a consistently defining moment in the life of many of our students, and we’re excited to watch each class explore a more committed relationship with Jesus!
Confirmation is class at Cornerstone for 8th and 9th graders. It’s designed to help students grow in their faith, ask tough questions and find answers together through Christ.
During the middle school years, big questions about purpose and faith tend to more a part of kids’ lives. Confirmation is an important journey for students as they discover the answers to these questions.
In Confirmation class, they’ll explore foundational beliefs shared by those who choose to follow Jesus Christ. Adult mentors walk alongside students during the whole process. Baptism is an option for students during Confirmation, as is becoming a member at Cornerstone.
Confirmation 2017-18 starts September 10 and runs through mid-March. It’s every Sunday from 11:00am-12:15pm at all campuses as long as there are enough signups! If there aren’t enough students at any campus, we’ll have to cancel Confirmation at that campus. If that happens, we’ll encourage students to go to another campus to join the class there! We’ll stay in touch with everyone who signs up.
HS Membership 2018
High School Membership is offered as a four-week class in March for 10th-12th grade students. It was created as a bridge between Confirmation for 8th-9th graders and Membership for adults. Each offering of this class becomes unique as we discover more about the high school students involved. and what they most want to learn and discover about faith and their own walk.
This foundational elements of the class will cover the following:
- Session 1: Overview, salvation, growth, outreach
- Session 2: Cornerstone, United Methodism, Membership
- Session 3: Sacraments – Baptism, Communion
- Session 4: Write personal belief statements (homework – share at session 4)
Signups for the next class will begin in January 2018. (We’ll have a sign up link on this page.)
