9th Graders are invited to join our yearly Confirmation Class that meets on the first and third Wednesday evenings of the month.  Confirmation is a time to study the reflection in which young adults make the decision whether or not they want to "confirm" the baptismal vows made on their behalf by their parents or to be baptized.  Rev. Esslinger co-teaches the Confirmation Class with one of our members, Nathalie Peltier-Horton.  In addition to the class meetings, Confirmands also participate in outside visits, a retreat and various service activities.  They also meet with Mentors and attend worship every Sunday.
