The process we take in the Confirmation of our Christian Faith is one of the most important aspects in the life of a Christian.

G. Giving students a strong foundation in the truths we confess.
R. Resourcing students to build living relationships.
A. Actively pursuing opportunities to grow together in faith and service.

C. Acolyte Training for all first-year students is offered in the fall of each year. This is essential for participation and scheduling. Check the Chapel Weekly for exact times. The Acolyte's Handbook is our resource.
