In Confirmation, a group of students join together to explore who Christ is, what it means to know Jesus through a life-long relationship and how we can follow Jesus as United Methodists. Confirmation is not simply a “rite of passage” or just a class to complete. It is a step in a life-long journey of pursuing the height, depth and width of God’s love and making a vow to live in relationship with Jesus for the rest of our lives!

The Vision: To mobilize students for the renewal of the Church.
Discover your passion. Discover your impact.
Leader Collective is for confirmed students in grades 8-12, who identify themselves as leaders. Whether their path lies in ministry as a career, social work, counseling, law, healthcare or lay leaders in the church, Leader Collective will place each student on an individual path to explore their leader potential. Mentors will provide support, encouragement, resources and options for these students.
We are committed to developing leadership through experiential learning and creating an authentic Christian community where students seek to discern and discover God's direction for their lives.

Rezlife worship bands lead worship for both Wednesday night youth groups, Sunday School and Sunday morning Confirmation classes. Many bands practice once a week in addition to rehearsal before the start of their ministry programs.
Auditions are held every fall, usually near the end of August or very early September. Students are asked to come prepared with a pre-selected worship song to perform vocally or play on their chosen instrument. Pre-registration is required to receive a specific audition slot.
