Confirmation Enrollment 2018-2019
Welcome to Confirmation!
We are excited for the year ahead.
Confirmation at Calvary is a 9.5-month program for 8th grade students running from August 26, 2018 through June 9, 2019. It is a time for faith formation, fun, and fellowship! Keep in mind that while the the program is designed for the faith development of the confirmands, the involvement of parents is an important part of our success! More information can be found at the bottom of this page detailing ways parents can plug in. Parents will need to complete Calvary's Safe Church Training in order to volunteer.
Note for your Calendars: Our kick-off event includes an enrollment and Confirmation day camp on Sunday, August 26 beginning during worship at 9:30am and concluding by 2:30pm. Families should plan to worship together that day and the confirmation students will stay for camp at Calvary. We will provide lunch.
Please plan to attend a mandatory Orientation for parents and students on Wednesday, September 12 at 7:00pm in the Chapel. We then meet weekly on Wednesdays at 7:00pm (with some exclusions and special occasions).
To enroll your child, please complete the form below. If you have more than one child to enroll, please complete a separate form for each child.
We ask $50 per confirmand to offset the program supply expenses. (Retreats have additional fees.) If that is a hardship, please email Pastor Cindy to discuss a confidential scholarship. You can pay using a credit card or PayPal using the link below the enrollment form on this page.
If you have any questions, please email Pastor Cindy.
