Confirmation is an experience through which students are given the opportunity, tools and resources to discern their relationship with God and their acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. The Confirmation experience at Good Shepherd is available for students in 8th grade and above. Through Bible Study, Day Away experiences, retreats, worship and service, students will explore their relationship and understanding of Jesus, the Methodist faith and Christian Community as found in one another.
The Confirmation experience concludes with an opportunity profess one’s faith in Jesus Christ and to join Good Shepherd United Methodist Church, if the student so chooses.
