9th Grade Confirmation
When we baptize people at Mount Olivet, we promise to know and celebrate their call in the world. The 9th grade confirmation year revolves around this promise. Each 9th grader will be given the opportunity to know God's call to them, diving deep into questions about who they are, where they connect most profoundly with the Christian faith, what gifts they posses, and where they might use them in service to their neighbor in the world. And as we discover our own callings, we will celebrate with one another in the community we form.
Confirmation - Grade 9
Each of our individual faith lives will look different, because God made us as unique people. But all Christians live a life that follows a basic pattern, a pattern that we name each time we baptize someone. Therefore, this year is structured around these five practices of faith:
To live among God's faithful people
To hear the Word of the Lord and share in the Lord's Supper
To proclaim the Good News of God in Christ through word and deed
To serve all people, following the example of Jesus
To strive for justice and peace in all the earth
