Confirmation retreats


Discipleship Matters

Explores discipleship through covenant community and themes of the United Church of Christ. Join us for a great experience with activities, worship and fellowship appropriate for youth in grades 7-9 during their Confirmation year! These weekends are facilitated by trained teams of pastors and educators from throughout our state who work with youth in their own settings. The purpose of these retreats is to offer youth an experience of the faith community by exploring basic Christian values of the church in a wider church setting.

The Connecticut Conference sponsors four Confirmation Retreats annually, hosted at the beautiful Silver Lake Conference Center in Sharon, CT.  If your church's group could benefit from a retreat experience with others exploring and preparing for Confirmation, these retreats were intended for you. Each retreat includes church leaders and youth from across our state. For your safety, we require one adult advisor for each 8 (eight) youth of each gender. Advisors must be 21 years of age or older.

Our full weekend retreat program begins on Friday night at 7:30 pm and ends before noon on Sunday. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are provided on Saturday, and brunch is served on Sunday.
