Why are we?
Confirmation Class is the process by which youth publicly profess their faith before the congregation and become individual members of Clemmons Presbyterian Church.
Presbyterians practice infant baptism as a reflection of God’s freely given grace – humans are loved by God and forgiven through Jesus Christ before we can even understand this grace. As young people mature, they have the opportunity to publicly claim their faith and affirm promises made on their behalf in baptism through a time of study and spiritual growth called “Confirmation.”
Each faith journey is different – youth don’t need to have been baptized as an infant or raised in a Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) congregation to participate.
Who are we?
This year (2020-21) we encourage 7th-8th grade youth to participate in the Confirmation Class. However, there is no “magic” age at which youth should participate. Any youth in 9th grade or higher who has not joined in a Confirmation Class either at CPC or at a previous church is also invited to participate.
What do we do?
Confirmands will meet regularly for fellowship and study through the 2020-21 school year. We will study the Bible, the sacraments, the church, the Trinity, worship, church history, and Reformed & Presbyterian Theology. We will grow in spiritual maturity through relationships with each other and adult leaders and teachers.
This year the class will begin the year online with hopes to meet in person as the year progresses.

Confirmation Playlists provide resources to learn about confirmation topics through mixed media.
Each playlist has four to five components: read, watch, listen, pray and sometimes additional activities. Your time is valuable! Most of the playlist content takes less than 10 minutes to watch, create, or explore. The playlists are designed to be completed on their own, yet also can build on one another. These playlists should be completed by the confirmands during the week before the ZOOM class on Sunday.
