Confirmation at Kenilworth Union Church

Next Confirmation Sunday is April 24, 2022

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 services the Sunday after Easter. Please contact the Silvi Pirn for information on joining the Confirmation program at Kenilworth Union Church.

Wilderness Course

The Wilderness Course offers the option to learn and participate in Confirmation Curriculum during a week-long outdoor wilderness trip in late July / early August, before tryouts for fall sports begin. This is a great option for those who cannot commit to Sunday morning Classroom attendance. It is designed both to teach an intensive version of the Confirmation curriculum, and to experience the wilderness as a co-teacher, where the water, trails, and winds themselves offer up wisdom about God and God’s world.

Wilderness Confirmation Course 2021: Olympic National Park  July 31–August 6. 

To inquire about registration for 2021, please contact Silvi Pirn.
