Community Confirmation Information

OverviewThe Round Hill Community Church Confirmation program is open to seventh and eighth grade students upon approval and agreement from the parents and youth and pastor. Special allowances will be made for students of other ages who have been unable to be confirmed previously. Though content is important in the journey of faith, we believe the process of discovery is equally as important.

Through intentional dialogue and discussion, faith-based questions will be explored over a period of several months. Each Confirmand will be paired up with a caring and committed adult; this relational aspect is the foundation of our program. We plan for our program to be a safe place for youth to raise their questions and doubts, and to struggle
and wrestle as they engage their faith and its meaning in their lives.

Through study, reflection, and sharing life together, students will discover what it means to be a person of faith and how that can have an impact living in this world and working for the greater good.

Through exploring Christian faith and other traditions, we hope that students will examine their own beliefs and better understand and articulate their individual experiences and views while discovering that faith is key to a flourishing life.

Community Service
Service is an integral part of faithful living and so Confirmands will be asked to complete a minimum of ten hours of community service, five hours of which must be done with the RHCC Youth Group. Below is a list of our local partners.
