Confirmation

Image goes here. 
But what does it say? "The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart," that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming:  That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 
Romans 10: 8-9
 
Confirmation is the time when a personal decision is made to confirm the vows of our baptism.  At KUMC, this happens as a group of students (typically in grades 6th-12th) join together for a series of classes that explore who Christ is, what it means to know Him through a life-long relationship, and how we follow Him as United Methodists.  The Confirmation then takes place in a ceremony within the context of the worship service as the students publicly declare their commitment to Christ and desire to become full adult members of our church family. 
 
Our first prayer is that each student involved will commit to a real and personal faith.  Our second prayer is that they will begin to cherish the rich heritage we have as United Methodists.  This includes the building of relationships with peers and adults who will support them in their faith.  Confirmation is not simply a “rite of passage.”  Nor, just a class to complete. It is a step in a life-long journey of pursuing the heights, depths, and widths of God’s love and making a vow to live in relationship with Him for the rest of our life!
