In the summer before their 10th grade year, those going through the confirmation process identify an adult to mentor them. One on one meetings help each child talk about whatever aspects of their faith may still be troubling them. Again, the purpose is not to quell any doubts, but to give them good information so that they may embrace faith at their own level. Healthy teens have at least five caring adults in their lives reinforcing their identity as a child of God. On the Sunday closest to Reformation Day, (October 31st), we hold a service of confirmation where each candidate presents what their faith means to them in worship. It is a powerful service to hear how each confirmand has made their faith their own.
