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?
It is our custom to encourage 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 meet regularly for fellowship and study. We study the Bible, the sacraments, the church, the Trinity, worship, church history, and Reformed & Presbyterian Theology. We grow in spiritual maturity through relationships with each other and adult mentors.
Classes typically meet in the spring and meeting schedules are unique to a given Class.
