Students and a parent should plan to attend Confirmation together at the hour of programming (4:30, 5:45, or 7:00) that works best for your family on Wednesday, March 7.
Each hour begins in the Sanctuary and after a Large Group opening, families may choose from one of the following breakout sessions:
- Looking Ahead to 9th Grade: This is a special breakout session designed with 8th graders in mind. Come get your questions about 9th Grade Confirmation answered, and learn more about the Rite of Confirmation Service.
- Make It Okay: This session helps participants learn about mental illnesses, how to combat stigma and effective ways to talk about mental illnesses as a general public, and also on a personal level. Each session is led by a representative from NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
- The 5 Love Languages of Teenagers: We all have one primary way in which we experience and feel loved that Dr. Gary Chapman has identified in his five love languages. In this session, participants learn about each of these love languages, identify the primary love language of ourselves and family members, and discuss ways in which we can show love to one another that has a lasting impact.
