Course Explanation

In Confirmation you are:

  • making a public, adult confession of your faith in Christ;

  • publicly committing yourself to this local church as a fully active member;

  • welcomed by the Bishop into the worldwide family of Anglican Christians;

  • being commissioned as a minister of Christ to serve him, not just taking on responsibilities as a fully involved and active member of our church and her ministries, but this is like ordination for the lay person, a public setting apart for ministry as Christ's witness and servant;

  • receiving the prayers of not only the bishop but also the whole church family who recognize you as a brother/sister in Christ and fellow workers of the kingdom of God.

This annual adult class is for anyone wanting to deepen their faith in Christ, learn about worship in the Anglican tradition, and complete the Confirmation membership process at The Falls Church Anglican. Whether you are new to the community or have been active at The Falls Church Anglican for years, consider joining us. Come and prepare to be a full member of The Falls Church Anglican, making this your church home, whether you are new or have been active for a long time!  We ask you to be in at least five of the eight Sunday morning classes, or three of the four Wednesday night classes.
