The Discipleship Program is a multi-faceted exposure to the opportunity to become a known and confessed follower of Jesus the Christ. Each person in the program follows a self-guided program with an adult mentor choosing tasks and studies in the following areas:
Worship and Spiritual Growth: Attending
churches, outlining sermons, joining in worship leadership, evaluating
worship materials, and providing creative worship resources are a few of the
options in this area.
Study and Learning: In a tutorial mode with your mentor, you will study several modules on Church life, history, Bible, Sacraments and the like, on a schedule of meetings you set up between you. In discussion, sharing, reacting, and exploration you will seek to "grow in wisdom ... and in favor with God and others."
Service and Caring: Through projects in the church and the community you will take steps to be a change agent in areas needing changes. The Intervention in our world of God's Word in Jesus is the motivation for mission and social action by his church. In hands on tasks of caring you can choose to make a difference by visits, labor, self giving, and other actions.
Friendship and Fellowship: "Getting to Know You" is another task of the program as we seek to get to know the whole church, and the segment of the church that is meeting needs you feel in yourself. The Youth Fellowships, Choirs, and other groups in church provide an arena for peer support and even positive pressure among committed and covenanted Christians.
Each confirmand also meets with the other confirmands in their class to learn more together as a group. Together the confirmands participate in retreats and other opportunities to explore faith and to discover more along their own faith journeys. The confirmation program is for youth in 9th grade and older. It begins in September and ends in June.
