About IGRC Confirmation Retreats

IGRC confirmation retreats are designed to complement, not replace, the confirmation classes in the local church. Participants are urged to register early for their first choice of retreat site.  Retreats typically start on Friday at 7:00 p.m. and end after worship on Sunday by 11:00 a.m.

In the company of other confirmation candidates from other local churches, participants will explore what it means to be a well-grounded, growing, committed, and missional member of the church.  Using Credo, published by The United Methodist Publishing House, participants will be challenged to:

  • Know Your Story:  Encounter the faith narrative from creation to Christianity
  • Confirm Your Faith: Embrace the essential beliefs and practices of The United Methodist Church
  • Live Your Commitment: Embody the confirmation vows and embark on the Christian discipleship journey
