IGNITE Confirmation (7-9)

IGNITE Confirmation is preparation for young people to publicly affirm the promises made at their baptism. IGNITE Confirmation begins in 7th grade and continues through 9th grade. IGNITE Confirmation is based on a small group model with single gender groups lead by an adult guide. Focus is on connecting, learning, and service.

IGNITE 9 (9th Grade)

In order to help students navigate the transition into high school, IGNITE 9 follows a different structure than IGNTIE 7/8. IGNITE 9 Confirmands will meet with their small groups once a month (check out the calendar for specific dates) from 7:00-8:30 p.m. and are required to attend four High School Ministries (HSM) Youth Group events between September 25, 2019 and April 29, 2020. HSM Youth Group events are held on Wednesday nights from 7:00-8:30 p.m. in the Youth Room. Additionally IGNITE 9 Confirmands are required to attend the “I Believe” retreat on January 24-25, 2020 at Camp Wapo. The purpose of the retreat is to help prepare Confirmands to create their Faith Projects.

All requirements for IGNITE 9 Confirmands must be turned in by April 30, 2020 in order to be confirmed on Sunday, May 3, 2020. Please remember that your Faith Project is due in the Incarnation Office one week BEFORE your interview and you should check-in to the Incarnation Office the day of your interview. We need to verify the spelling and pronunciation of your given name and give you your Confirmation robe.

Wednesday Evening Optional Dinner

An optional dinner is provided from 5 – 6:00 p.m. for students or families that choose to participate. The cost for the dinner is $110 per person for the year, or $400 for a family for the year. (The family fee can be paid by semester, $200 in September and $175 in January if families choose). Dinners are offered every Wednesday that IGNITE 5/6 is in session. For more information on dinner or to sign up to participate please contact Julie Durbin.

IGNITE Volunteers

Adult and college leaders are the backbone of IGNITE ministry. In order to be responsible for the safety of kids and for the protection of adult volunteers, in 2004 the Incarnation Council implemented the Policy for Protecting Children and Youth. For many volunteer positions in IGNITE Middle School Ministry, including being a guide, substitute guide, or driver, adult volunteers need to submit a completed background check form at least one week prior to volunteering. Background checks are valid for 3 years.
