Confirm not Conform (CnC)
Grades 7 – 9
CnC is a confirmation program that gives youth from St. Mark’s and St. Matthew’s a voice and a voice. . . and it is much more! It is a program that involves parents, adult mentors, and church leadership – connecting them with the youth and their ministry. It empowers youth for ministry, involving them in the life of the congregation, encouraging adults to seem them as the full and active members that they are. And, perhaps most importantly, it gives youth an opportunity to ask their questions and voice their doubts! Young people begin CnC when they are 13 or 14 years old. The program is offered every other year and runs for two years.
CnC will launch in September 2018. If you are a young person who would like to be involved OR if you know a young person who is in grades 7, 8 or 9 and you would like them to be involved, please contact CnC Leaders Deane or Debra at CnC@stmarksevanston.org.
