Confirmation is not the same as the profession of faith. In confirmation, one is confirming the promises that one or one's parents have made at Baptism. Baptism and confirmation are two bookends of the beginning of the journey of faith.
You are seeing this message because you have indicated that the candidate for confirmation is not baptized.
By submitting this form you are acknowledging that the candidate is willing to be baptized should he or she decide to be confirmed. That baptism can take place in the context of a separate service or during the confirmation service.
We at the United Methodist Church of Hyde Park welcome folks from all backgrounds who share different comfort levels or opinions on various social and theological issues. While we will respect your personal choice when it comes to your family's health, we would encourage you to reflect and consider using one of the COVID-19 vaccines for your child. This would enable us to drop the masking and distancing protocols, allowing us to have a more interactive and relational confirmation experience.
