Confirmation at Marion Methodist is an opportunity to immerse an emerging youth in the basic teachings of the Christian faith and be trained in the way of discipleship. All 7th graders and 8th graders new to the church are invited and encouraged to participate in this 13 month experience.

Pastor Mike and the leaders desire to lead kids towards being active residents of the kingdom of God, those who are willing to serve Him faithfully all of their days. Everything we do has the intent of building the child into a disciple for Jesus Christ and servant of his Kingdom.
