About Grades 6 – 9

Confirmation

Confirmation, also known as Affirmation of Baptism, is the time when young people declare for themselves that they will live out the promises made for them by their parents and sponsors during their baptism. At Bethel, this typically begins in 6th grade with four years of classes, activities, and events for students to explore faith, life, and the church. Confirmation class is held on Wednesdays from 5:30- 6:30 pm September through May.

Mentor

Every confirmation student at Bethel is required to have a mentor outside their family. Their mentor should be a trusted Christian adult whom the student sees living an active, vibrant faith.

Youth-led Worship on Wednesdays

Confirmation students at Bethel take active roles in worship on Wednesday evenings. This is an opportunity for students to grow as servant leaders.
