let's get started

Our faith in Jesus Christ began when we were young. Our faith began when we were baptized as a response to the love and grace of God. Our faith was cultivated every time we came to church, asked a hard question in Sunday School, or tried to figure out how the world worked in elementary and middle school. Now is the time when we attempt to put it all together.

Confirmation program

Confirmation is the process by which we affirm and publicly profess our faith in Jesus Christ. Confirmation is by no means the destination of our faith, but the very beginning of the journey that we have with God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.

The confirmation program at the Presbyterian Church in Morristown has four components: education, service, worship, and mentorship. Confirmation is offered every year for 8th grade students. Older students who were unable to participate in confirmation their 8th grade year are welcome to join. We’re excited to be a small part of your faith journey and we can’t wait to see where God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit lead you through our time together in confirmation.
