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 late September and continue until early spring. Registration for September, 2022 will be available spring/summer 2022.

Wilderness Course

Trip Dates July 30–August 5, 2022. This trip is full, but contact Silvi Pirn if you would like to join a waitlist.

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.

Confirmation at Kenilworth Union Church

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.
