Confirmation is the sacramental rite through which baptized Christians affirm their mature faith. After an initial meeting on Sunday, 9/24/23 after the 10 am Eucharist, confirmands will serve regularly as acolytes and readers during church throughout the year, and attend monthly service activities with other parish youth. Participating in the life of the church, in the liturgy and in service, is an important part of learning and claiming a mature faith. Confirmands are also encouraged and invited to attend Wednesday Night Bible Study meetings and the Redeemer Youth Group – scripture and fellowship are also important parts of life in the church!
We will meet regularly for class together for about 8 weeks in the spring; days and times will be set and shared in the winter. Confirmation is usually held in May or early June. In the Diocese of Maryland, youth who are 15 (or turning 15 the year they are confirmed) may participate. Sign up here. Contact Rebecca+ with questions or 443-571-2736.
Wednesday Night Bible Study
Wednesday Night Bible Study is new this year! Starting September 13, Join other middle and high schoolers from 6:30-7:30 pm every second and fourth Wednesday for fellowship, Bible study, and prayer. There will be a group for middle schoolers and a group for high schoolers. The middle school Bible study will be led by Allison Harmon. The high school group will be led by Rebecca+. Both groups will meet at Redeemer. You can eat beforehand or BYO dinner; we’ll take turns bringing dessert to share! Sign-up here.
Middle and high schoolers are invited to serve as acolytes during the liturgy. Acolytes carry the cross, the torches, and the Gospel in procession and assist at the altar when necessary. As they move through the space, acolytes help the congregation to follow the flow of worship and support the gathered Body of Christ as we pray. Email Rebecca+ to sign up, or look for sign-ups in the weekly youth newsletter.
