Confirmation Retreat: Colour Outside the Lines, Unravel Faith, Resurrect Hope and Create Radical Beauty on Earth
A retreat to support & enrich the confirmation process of your congregation. For both youth & leaders. Come, share the journey!
Five Oaks, in partnership with the United Church and the Anglican Church, is offering a Confirmation program. This residential weekend event is designed to help those discerning confirmation to dig a little deeper, explore the roots of faith and put down their own roots more securely. This is an event which is meant to supplement a congregationally-based formation process (which we recognize will vary based on congregation size and number of youth).
Gathering together at Five Oaks offers youth the opportunity to meet peers from other congregations and to share the journey of being confirmed. United Church, Anglican or Lutheran youth and leaders are welcome.
For this retreat youth are expected to attend with an adult from their church who will be responsible for the supervision of the youth and who will participate fully in the program. It is recommended that the congregation ensure that the adult has been appropriately screened and trained in safe church practices. This adult must be able to attend the whole weekend. Youth will need the name of their leader in order to register for the event.
Please bring a peanut/nut free snack to share.
Congregations are responsible for administration of their own parental consent forms based on their own local practices.
