Confirmation at Kenilworth Union Church

Confirmation Sunday is May 14, 2023

Ninth Grade is confirmation year at Kenilworth Union Church. Older teens who have not previously been confirmed are also welcome to enroll.

Confirmation is a course of education, exploration, and faith formation that challenges what youth know and believe about the Christian faith. By the end of their course, each confirmation student will be given the opportunity to say “yes” to being confirmed at Kenilworth Union, and to join the Church as adult members.

Two Course Options:
Confirmation instruction happens in two formats explained below. Students in both courses are expected to complete additional confirmation requirements on their own time and are confirmed together as one class at Confirmation Sunday worship the Sunday after Easter. Please contact the Katie Lancaster for information on joining the Confirmation program at Kenilworth Union Church.

Classroom Course

The Classroom Course is a traditional confirmation format in which students attend a series of Sunday morning classes and attend additional information sessions and events. A “Confirmation Requirements” pdf link is below. Classes begin in September and continue until early spring. Registration is open.

Wilderness Course

Trip Dates July 30–August 5, 2022. This trip has happened for the year, but enjoy pictures from the Wilderness Course and other youth activities on our KUC Youth Instagram page.

The Wilderness Course covers the same coursework as the classroom course, but the work is completed during an intensive, week long wilderness trip before the school year begins for rising Freshmen. Students on the wilderness trip will have two class discussions each day during the trip and will end the trip with their faith statement writing workshop. This experience is perfect for those who want to experience the wilderness and for those whose schedules might not allow for Sunday class attendance.
