8th Grade Confirmation

APC's 8th grade students spend several weeks exploring the history and traditions of the Christian faith, as well as looking within to discern their own special place in the great story of God's creation, guided by pastors, teachers, and mentors. On Joining Sunday, members of the Confirmation class profess their faith and join the church as full members.
Our 2017 Confirmation class joined the church on February 26.
