Episcopal CHurch of the Holy Trinity, Midland TX
Youth Confirmation


There is one, and only one, unrepeatable act of Christian initiation, which makes a person a member of the body of Christ; that rite is baptism.  Many believe it is confirmation, but that is wrong.       Confirmation is the renewal of one’s Baptismal Covenant, not it’s completion.  Confirmation represents a mature recognition of our baptism and a strengthening by the Holy Spirit.  Some faiths have what they term “Altar Call”, but with infant baptism, this becomes our “Altar Call”.  Nothing new happens at confirmation, but through the bishop’s participation in the rite, confirmands are  physically connected to the diocese, the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion, and are sacramentally united with the   apostles, the universal Church, and with Jesus Christ. 

What confirmation is not is a graduation from Church, rather it is a mature commitment to the church.  It is not a vaccine or pill that will somehow stamp that person with Episcopal.  I have seen both those beliefs in the many years I have led our youth confirmation. The goal of Confirmation class is to build their relationship to God, community, discover spiritual gifts, and help discover their place in a church.  We have learned that the class needs to be a six-month commitment in order to accomplish these goals and build community.  We connect the youth with an adult mentor in the church who will help them on their spiritual journey.         

Our topics include The Trinity, Faith, Creeds, Scripture, Church, Episcopal Church History and Traditions, Book of Common Prayer, Baptism, Eucharist, Prayer, Worship and Liturgy, Confession and Reconciliation, Music, Christian Ministry, Evangelism, Spiritual Gifts and My Ministry.  We will have a week-end retreat, service  project, meet the mentor night, and stain-glass art project ending with Confirmation.

Our goal is to start class in October, during the Sunday School hour 9:15-10:15 in the Youth Room.  Youth 6th grade and up are invited. We will have and orientation with the Youth and Parents. We don’t have a bishop visit set at the time but hope it will be in the Spring.  Please prayerfully consider if the        confirmation of your Baptismal covenant is what you want to commit to, and let Fr. Bob know you are interested.       

 Many Thanks, Paula Howbert (confirmation team)
