Confirmation and Intergenerational Worship
At Chatfield UMC we hope that all people who enter our doors will grow in the Grace of God so that they can be those who transform the world through their lives and witness. To that end we want our youth to feel a part of the entire ministry of the church.
Youth are instructed in the faith tradition of the UMC through Confirmation Classes. These are led by Pastor Debra and meet according to the schedules of the class. Students in confirmation are in Middle School and early High School.
Once the youth are confirmed it is hoped that they will become an integrated part of the community of the church through regular worship attendance, participation in service trips and service in the church.
As such we do not have a formal youth group but include the youth in whatever activity or service or worship the church does as a faith community.
Youth are treated with dignity, respect and we know them by name.
