Confirmation Parent Class 2022
Sundays, 9:30 a.m., Room 131
January 9 - May 15 (Easter off)

Welcome! This class is specifically designed for parents of students going through Confirmation.  Arranged similarly to our Small Group Bible Studies, parents will watch short videos featuring Holly Blais, Confirmation Coordinator, and St. Andrew pastors and then have time to discuss what they have heard. Lessons will cover the same topic the confirmands are learning each week, giving you an opportunity to journey along with your confirmand. In addition to the videos made for the Confirmation Parent Class, videos for students who are unable to attend class will be loaded to this page each week as they are created and linked to "Watch the Student Video" in each section below. This is another great way to hear what your student is learning in class.
