Children & Youth Programs

We provide safe spaces for children and youth to encounter God through community, scripture, and play. We invite young people to ask questions and think critically about their own faith throughout their spiritual education and journey, as they become Disciples of Jesus Christ.

Confirmation

Confirmation is a 12-month program beginning in the spring of a student’s 8th grade year. The monthly meetings focus on the basics of Christian faith and practice. At the end of the program, the students should be able to articulate the faith and decide whether they want to publicly declare their faith and join the United Methodist Church. Participation in worship, meeting with a mentor, and volunteer hours inside and outside of the church are requirements in addition to the classes. For more information, contact Pastor Heather at pastor@jeffumc.com.
