Led by: Pastor Gordon
Learn about your faith, explore who Christ is, what it means to know Jesus through a life-long relationship and how we can follow Him as United Methodists.
What is Confirmation?
Confirmation is not simply a “rite of passage” or 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 Jesus for the rest of our lives! You do not need to be a member of Oberlin United Methodist Church to join us on the Confirmation Journey.
The Confirmation Ceremony is the students’ first public affirmation of the faith of the church as being their own faith. The Confirmand is taking responsibility for living as a member of the body of Christ and for fulfilling God’s purposes. This includes building relationships with peers and adults who will support them in their faith. We strongly believe this is done through small group relationships long after Confirmation is over.
What are the age requirements?
We currently offer the confirmation class to grades 6th thru 8th grade. If your child is in high school, please talk to Pastor Gordon about confirmation.
