Confirmation at Plymouth

For 6th - 8th Graders


Do you know families with Middle School students who need extra support & resources this year? Help spread the word about our amazing, inclusive, and transformative Confirmation Program.

During Confirmation (6th-8th Grades) at Plymouth Congregational Church, we will explore our faith together and learn about the Christian tradition in an open-minded, inclusive environment.  We allow our students to articulate what they believe and how they feel called to live out their own unique faith expression in this season. Sign up here or email Rev. Caroline Lawson Dean with any questions!


At the end of the confirmation program (in the spring of 8th grade), the students are given the opportunity to join Plymouth Church during the confirmation ceremony officially. In addition, our 8th-grade class will receive supplemental curriculum/programming since they have Confirmation for one year.

The confirmation program is robust and offers each student a rich small group opportunity, alongside dynamic small group leaders.  We will also explore local service opportunities to help us connect with Plymouth’s mission partners and service-learning opportunities that fuel our faith.  Our confirmation program also emphasizes worship attendance, and families will receive regular communications, including discussion guides for their own conversations at home.  


FAQs

What if my student is in the 8th grade and signs up? 


Our 8th-grade students will get extra curriculum/experiences this year since their confirmation programming year will run one year (instead of multiple years).


What if we have a friend who wants to attend the middle school youth programming? 


They are welcome to participate in our upcoming Youth and Families Orientation on August 15th at 5:30 p.m. to learn more about the program. 


Friends are also always welcome to try out Confirmation throughout the year to see if they want to sign up.  In addition, our monthly Youth Service Corps Projects and “Late Nights” are also open to friends! The Late Night sign up is here!
