Y-LIFE Youth and Confirmation Ministries

Welcome to the Youth and Confirmation page. Check out what's going on.

 Y-LIFE YOUTH AND CONFIRMATION WORK AS PART OF THE WOVEN TAPESTRY THAT IS "YOUTH AND FAMILY MINISTRY" AT RELC. 

OUR CONFIRMATION PROGRAM RUNS TWO AND A HALF YEARS AND OFFERS YOUTH AND FAMILIES FAITH FORMATION, VIRTUE AND VALUE LESSONS, COMMUNITY BUILDING AND OPPORTUNITY TO "serve God by serving others."  WHEN THE EXPERIENCE IS COMPLETE - WE OFFER THE OPTION TO HAVE ALL YOUTH AFFIRM THEIR BAPTISM THROUGH A CELEBRATION OF CONFIRMATION EXPERIENCE.

REGISTRATION FORM ATTACHED

 

CONFIRMATION - WHEN DO WE MEET?

At RELC, we realize that the traditional model of Confirmation Class every WEdnesday night, just doesn't fit with the busy lives of youth and families any more.  Therefore, we offer a once a month Saturday afternoon workshop.  Each workshop starts with a potluck meal - planned and served by our confirmation class for their parents.  While the kids prepare the meal, parents have a chance to meet with each other and have conversations before their busy world starts again.  After lunch and clean up, parents depart and the work begins!  Devotions and check in happen followed by faith formation learning.  Each session includes hands-on learning and dialogue and a service project related to the monthly theme.  Children learn their bible basics and review at an older age those fundamental things taught in Sunday School.  As young adults preparing to live and work in the world, current events are always brought into the mix as we discuss how we will live and work in the world today with all of God's people. 

Cover PhotoSo – here’s the plan for confirmation Saturdays for the next three months.  Each Saturday will be followed by a “service project” the following week.  We will also have family service days – TBD and just plain old funday Sundays or other days to round out everything.  I will have more details on workshop but here is the basics to put on your calendars.
