7TH AND 8TH GRADE CONFIRMATION CLASS

CONFIRMATION CLASS DETAILS FOR THE 2022-23 SCHOOL YEAR

ACC has a long tradition of offering confirmation to our students.  Confirmation Is an important opportunity for students to dive deeper into scripture and build Godly community.  We have made some exciting format changes for the upcoming year. Read all about it:

What is the format?

Confirmation is a two year program for 7th and 8th graders. The length of the program will allow for deeper study and community for each student who participates. We will spend a full year on the Old Testament and a full year on the New Testament while also talking through discipleship practices and Covenant theology.

When will the confirmation class meet?
Confirmation will meet once a month after the Sunday service on the 4th Sunday of the month. There will be some exceptions for holidays. Sessions will be two hours and lunch will be provided. Here are the dates for this next year:
  • August 28
  • September 25
  • October 23
  • November 27
  • December 11
  • January 22,
  • February 26
  • March 26
  • April 23
  • May 6-Confirmation Dinner
  • May 7-Confirmation Sunday
What is the commitment? 
Confirmation works when each student can be consistent in their participation. We are asking that you commit to these intensives because each one builds community in the group and helps your student get all they can out of the curriculum. Your student can miss one intensive a semester but that would have to be arranged ahead of time and there would be some make up work for your student. At this time each year you can reassess if confirmation is something that fits into you family calendar and opt out if you choose.
Who is teaching?

One of the great gifts of confirmation to your students is the teaching and leading by the full pastoral staff. Right now we have scheduled time for our current staff to teach and our next lead pastor will jump into this program as well when they come.

When do I need to sign my child up?

To sign up all you have to do is email Mike NunanThe deadline for this year is Sunday, August 21. This gives us a week before our first intensive to make sure we have everything ready.
