Seventh and eighth graders are invited to participate in our Confirmation Mentoring Program. Small groups meet with adult mentors, discuss scripture, and relate it to their lives. Mentors and their students typically meet monthly between October and May to complete eight readings and discussions. We all come together several times throughout the year for special events and service projects. Please check out the schedule.
Confirmands are invited to participate weekly and in church-wide events. During the Sunday 9:30am service, they can acolyte or sing in the choir. Confirmands also attend Youth Group, which meets after worship from about 10:45-11:30am.
Confirmation takes place in the 8th grade year, this year on Tuesday, May 7, 2019. 8th graders will meet with the bishop at 6:30PM and receive the Sacrament of Confirmation at 7:30PM.
For more information about Formation for 7th and 8th graders, contact Megan Miller, Director of Youth Ministries.

Keeping God’s People Safe
The Christ Church community is committed to maintaining a safe and supportive atmosphere for our children and youth. To foster a secure environment, we provide Keeping God’s People Safe training to all who work with our children and youth, including church school teachers, mentors, clergy, and staff. This training sensitizes us to the dangers of child sexual abuse and teaches us to recognize and prevent situations in which abuse or exploitation might occur. Please contact the parish office if you have any questions regarding this training.
