Confirmation is a time to explore your faith and how God is calling you to live daily.


With god as our guide, this journey is taken with peers and caring adults along the way, a reminder that we are not alone on this path through the ups and downs of life. Confirmation includes times of interactive learning, service, worship and retreats as students make their way to affirming for themselves the promises made at their Baptism.


At Trinity, Confirmation is a 3 year program; students can begin Year A as a 7th grade student or anytime after.

APRIL 15      YEAR A, B, C

SERVICE NIGHT.  These have been an important tradition in our Confirmation Program over the years. Serving one another is a way we live out our faith.

We may not be able to gather to do our service together in person, but we can join our hands and our actions together to be an act of love this week.  

Your task this week is ONE ACT OF SERVICE.

Think about way that you can share God's love and bring hope and joy to another.  Send a handwritten note to a grandparent.  Bake cookies for a neighbor. Read a story to a younger cousin by video.  Be Creative.

Let Suzie know about your ACT OF SERVICE. Pictures are preferred!  Email Suzie or send her a text by Sunday, April 19.

APRIL 22      YEAR A, B, C


For Confirmation this week, we would like you to call up someone you know and interview them.  Pick someone you know that believes in God and lives out their faith.  This could be a grandparent, aunt or uncle, family friend, or another adult to admire.  Call them up and interview them.   It's just 3 questions. There are 2 ways to access the form with the questions and turn it in:  download and print the PDF or complete the online GoogleForm.

Due May 1, 2020.
