Join us for a great experience with a new set of activities and renewed worship and fellowship experiences! Staffed by pastors and educators from throughout our state.
The purpose of these retreats is not to teach confirmation all in one weekend, but to help build community and to help begin the process of asking the questions that are key to a Confirmation process.
to give the confirmation students in our local churches an opportunity to meet others like themselves, and to provide an opportunity for them to experience Christian community.
Silver Lake Conference Center provides a number of Confirmation Retreats annually. If your church's Confirmation Class is too small on its own of if your class could benefit from a retreat experience with other classes, these retreats were designed for you. The purpose of these retreats is not to teach confirmation all in one weekend but to help build community and to help begin the process of asking the questions that are key to the Confirmation process. The curriculum resources used are appropriate for young people in 7th - 9th grade.
Silver Lake provides the resources and the leadership for each retreat and each group is required to bring adult advisors to facilitate the program: One male adult for every eight male youth participants and one female adult for every eight female youth participants.
Each retreat begins on Friday night at 7:00PM and ends before noon on Sunday. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are provided on Saturday, and breakfast is served on Sunday. For further information and to register, please follow the links below; these weekends fill up quickly, so save your spots soon!
