Many churches, due to a variety of reasons, are not able to provide a confirmation experience for their children and youth. This Conference-wide confirmation retreat is a response to that need. If your church has a confirmation program, the retreat is not to replace your church's confirmation, but to be an enhancement.
Churches may use the retreat as a "kick-off" or a "wrap-up" for their confirmation classes. In addition, it will provide an opportunity for their youth to enjoy the fellowship and interaction with other UM youth who are exploring their faith and call to commitment.
Register your youth online here:
Order copies for your church staff and leadership.(All appointed clergy will receive a copy of the calendar free. You do not need to order.)
Cost is $8 per calendar. The calendar will focus on our Disaster Response Ministries.

Human Relations SundayThe church has designated January 19, 2014 as Human Relations Day. This past year our Conference raised over $12,000 to support United Methodist Voluntary Services, at-risk youth through the Youth Offender Rehabilitation Programs, and other community advocacy groups in the United States and Puerto Rico. Your support for this special offering helps to transform our youth into better members of our communities.
