10th Grade Confirmands
Letter sent August 2021
Confirmands and Parents,
After some strange and straining times, I’m so excited to be preparing for our 10th Graders Confirmation! We will celebrate the Rite of Confirmation on October 31st at our 10:30 a.m. service, and we will have a practice on the Saturday before, October 30th at 10:00 0.am. Please get these dates on your calendar so we can have everyone attend.
Before being confirmed, we will be meeting with our Confirmands to discuss what it means to confirm and affirm their faith. The 10th Graders and I will be meeting on Wednesday evenings at 8:00 p.m. (after worship) starting September 15th; this is a requirement for being confirmed. During this time, we will be going over the promises that will be made in confirmation and working on a faith statement. This faith statement isn’t meant as a test or proof, but as a way for our Confirmands to dig deep into their faith.
To make sure you keep up with our meeting times and other updates, please join the Remind app group. The code is: @oslcnu10
Along with this letter I’ve included an instructional sheet about the Faith Statement, which we will be going over starting September 15th. I’ve also included a form about Robes. Please return this form to the Church Office by September 26th so we can make sure we have robes for everyone.
Thanks for being a part of the Confirmation Program at OSLC. I’m look forward to seeing you all again as the year kicks off. Remember that we will be having a Celebration of the new year on September 12th, with worship at 10:00 a.m. I hope to see you all there. If you have questions, please contact the church office or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Blessings and Peace,
