Adult Confirmation Gathering

September 16

In our faith tradition, confirmation is a program by which young people have the opportunity to make a firm decision whether they will claim the name Christian for themselves and will offer up their prayers, presence, gifts, and service as a member of the United Church of Christ. 

For years, adults who have not grown up in the UCC or even in the Protestant tradition; or who are just interested in a well-rounded survey course in Bible, church history, comparative religion, the United Church of Christ, ethics, mission, worship, and faith formation, have asked, “Is there an adult confirmation class?” 

While it’s been a few years, we can once again answer, “Why, yes there is!” Beginning in September, the pastors will offer an eight-session adult confirmation class that will parallel the class schedule of our confirmation program for young people. We will also share with them visiting other faith communities, doing justice work, and even taking a confirmation trip. It all begins with a dinner together on Friday evening, September 16 and an introductory session. 

Most other monthly sessions will be on Sunday following worship. We are using the “adult” version of the confirmation materials that the young people use. At the end of the year-long study, a special service of blessing will be offered to the participants. The only requirement is that each participant commit to all eight classes to build community and to experience the unfolding journey of this class. 

To receive the schedule, information, or to register, please contact Pastor Laurie at LaurieH@gablesucc.org.
