Confirmation 2018-2019

Our Confirmation class is offered every other year. 2018-2019 is a confirmation year. When the youth of United Parish are 15-18 years of age, they are invited to participate in Confirmation.

What is confirmation? An opportunity for young adults to become informed about their faith, develop their personal spiritual character and religious integrity, and choose to be baptized or to take their infant baptism vows into their own adult lives. Contact Pastor Lourey at or click here for more information.

Other Youth Programs Offered

Introduction to the Bible Class (offered in the spring)

All third grade students (or older who have not yet participated in this program) are invited to attend an "Introduction to the Bible" class, led by Christian Education Director, Jessica Murphy. The classes are held on three consecutive Sunday mornings from 8:00-9:30 usually in April/May. Children who complete the class will be recognized and presented with a Bible on Celebration Sunday. For more information contact Jessica at

Communion Preparation Class (offered in the fall)

All children in 4th grade and up, are invited to attend a special class about the importance of receiving communion. The class is held during Sunday School on three consecutive Sunday mornings usually in September/October. Our church believes that all are welcome to partake in communion; however, attending the preparation classes beforehand will make the tradition more meaningful for each individual.

Vacation Bible Camp

We invite every child in the community to participate in our Vacation Bible Camp program, held one week during the summer.

VBC 2019 ~ More information to come, Spring 2019

We also host family gatherings and family-centered programs such as an Advent Family Celebration and a Maundy Thursday meal and worship service.
