Confirmation

During 8th grade, Knox offers a dynamic Confirmation Program from September through April. This 8-month program helps students to learn more deeply what it means to be a Christian with weekly classes, large group instruction, and several fellowship and service project activities throughout the year. The program culminates with a Weekend of Decision and public pledge to follow Christ on Confirmation Sunday.
Contact Darin Nettleton for additional information.


Key Dates for the spring:
  • March 21 - Time Change - Meet at 9:00 in the Sanctuary for in-person Worship
  • April 11 - Meet at 9:00 in the Sanctuary for in-person worship
  • April 17th - Day of Decision, to replace the full Weekend of Decision
Day of Decision Details:

Given the ongoing concern of COVID, we will not be asking the 2020-2021 class of Confirmation to join in an overnight retreat. Instead, we will gather for a one-day retreat at Camp Stronghold in Oregon, Illinois. This is a mandatory event for all Confirmands, Class Teachers, and Class Directors. Please register here.

  • Times: Arrive at 9:30am at Knox. Return by 9:30pm at Knox. Drop off and pickup will be at Knox.
  • Bring: Clothing appropriate for running, jumping, being outside and inside (check weather before choosing an outfit!). Water bottle. Mask. 
  • Safety: We will be seated 1 per seat on the bus (or one household, for siblings), and remain masked indoors, on the bus, and anytime we cannot maintain 6 feet social distancing. Meals (lunch and dinner) will be consumed at 10 feet social distancing indoors, or outdoors with 6 feet. While at the retreat center, we will not be interacting with groups other than our own. We will spend as much of the day outside as possible, weather permitting.
