The term "confirmation" is used to mark the first time a young person publicly "confirms" their intention to live as a follower of Jesus and becomes a professing member of the church. In the Lynn Haven United Methodist Church, those seeking Confirmation attend a series of classes, then are publicly "confirmed" in front of the church body and welcomed as members of the church. Participants are typically middle school students, but an older student who has not yet been through Confirmation may also participate.

Confirmation classes at Lynn Haven UMC will begin Feb. 5, 2023 and run for seven weeks. Most classes are on Sunday afternoons from 4 to 5:30 pm. Participants must attend a minimum of five out of the seven classes.

Our Youth Minister Neal McGee, Pastor Craig Carter, Pastor Terry Tatum, and Family Ministry Director, Mary McQuagge will all teach lessons. The classes will prompt students to discuss the faith and beliefs of God and our church.

Parents of Middle School students who are interested in participating: Please scroll down and complete the form at the bottom of this page to let us know that your student(s) will be participating.
