Confirmation weekends are filled with kids from across the Southeast. For youth to worship together from so many diverse backgrounds, and to be unified by their belief in God, is truly inspiring - both for them and for the adults who accompany them! The Intentional Growth Center’s Confirmation Retreat Weekends will help confirmands in their spiritual life as they prepare to make a commitment of faith.
The focus of our weekends is to augment the curriculum being taught in the local church, with a focus on providing tools to help youth keep their promise when they are confirmed in the church.
Confirmation weekends allow groups to get together outside the walls of their home churches to experience quality time, free from distractions. It’s a time to deepen our understanding of our faith journeys and meet Confirmands from other places as we share our journeys together.
Confirmation Retreat Weekends now have a stronger focus on service. Learn how we are implementing a hands-on service experience throughout the weekend.
