Cross View’s confirmation ministry is a special, two-year course led by Pastor Wheeler that prepares 7th and 8th graders for the rite of confirmation and for becoming members of the church.
Confirmation class meets on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:00 p.m. Pastor Steve Wheeler delivers heartfelt messages from the Scripture, leads small group discussions, and supervises games and contests (and quizzes) designed to strengthen students’ appreciation for God’s Word and the rite of confirmation. Parents join the class once a month and participate in small group discussions and contests with the students.
7th graders share their time and talents through service work in the community and present their work at the end of Year One of the class. 8th graders present personal testimonials about their walk with God before being confirmed in front of the congregation.
Confirmation is a rich experience for our students and is often cited as one of the most memorable and meaningful offerings at Cross View.
