Confirmation 2020-2021

Welcome to 8th grade and CONFIRMATION!  Like everything else, Confirmation will look a bit different this year. We will have a hybrid approach and will do most of our work in small groups but will also do some online gatherings and education.  This creates an interesting opportunity for us and I am excited about the changes that we are making. 

I know it is only July, but we want to provide some resources to help you get ready for Confirmation! We have a gift of a devotion book and resources for your family to have deeper faith conversations.  Here are the details:

Confirmation Resources PICK-UP:  July 14, 1:00-2:00 pm, July 19, 10:00-11:00 am OR August 2, 10:00 – 11:00 am. 

Pick-up is at the over-hang by the front door to the church offices. Drive into the church drive from Oxford Place, like you are going right through to Providence Road. Greeters will be at the over-hand and direct you to the pick-up. We will be inviting you to get out of your car and pick up your own bag off the bench by the front door to the offices. Someone will be there to direct you, but they will be standing 10 feet away! 

CONFIRMATION REGISTRATION FORMS:  We invite you to officially fill out registration forms online.  This is our first year to try the online registration forms but it seems very easy and quick. Please fill out the registration forms before August 1.There are 3 forms to fill out, here are the links:

  1. https://mppc_cypp.formstack.com/forms/participant_event_trip_covenant
  2. https://mppc_cypp.formstack.com/forms/confirmand_registration_form
  3. https://mppc_cypp.formstack.com/forms/medical_liability_release_form

There is also a small cost for confirmation. It helps us cover our service projects, curriculum and notebooks that each student will receive in September. Payment link here. Please have this done before August 1.

If you have trouble completing your forms or would like to wait on the payment, or receive financial support for the cost, please contact Kabrel Brown, our administrative assistant, at Kbrown@myersparkpres.org . 

What does a hybrid Confirmation look like?  Our confirmation group begins with a ZOOM Class in August as our kick-off.  We will feature some videos about what it means to be Presbyterian and introduce them to their small groups in break-out rooms. We will meet in-person, for those who feel comfortable, for a service project in small groups mid-September.  You will get a schedule in your confirmation bag! 

This is a big class!! I cannot wait to work with you and get to know each of  you better.  If you know of someone who does not have a church home that would like to be part of this class, please let us know.

Please fill out the registration forms as well as the online payment and if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us at youth@myersparkpres.org
