At WCC we offer a one-year confirmation class for youth who are in 8th grade or above. The Confirmation program runs from September through May and meets weekly. This program is co-led by our Associate Pastor for Children, Family and Youth and Senior Pastor, alongside our dedicated Faith Guides. Each Confirmand also has a Mentor (a church member who is not the parent of another Confirmand) with whom they meet regularly. The program is richly conversational and interactive, and it draws directly on the particular gifts and personality of each Confirmand and of each class, as a whole. In the spring, the class will participate in a weekend retreat, each Confirmand will write a Faith Statement, meet individually with a pastor, and present their Faith Statement to Council.
