Be confirmed in your faith.

Confirmation is a program for students in grades 7th-12th who wish to be confirmed in the United Methodist Church.  The program is designed to study the beliefs of the United Methodist Church as well as to dive deep into what it means to be a Christian.  Upon completion, students will have the opportunity to stand before the congregation and proclaim their faith and their commitment to Woodlake UMC.

Recommended for 7th-12th Graders

Confirmation combines worship, Bible study, service and church ministry opportunities together in one place.

REQUIREMENTS

The confirmation retreat is a one-day event held at Woodlake UMC for our confirmands. It is an important and mandatory component of the confirmation process as it provides an opportunity for learning, worship, service, and fellowship. The retreat is scheduled early in the process because it helps our confirmands build trust and bond as a group.
