Every year, St. Matthew's and St. Mark's team up to use a confirmation program for youth called Confirm not Conform or CnC.

Confirm not Conform is focused on helping young people ask tough questions and search out answers. Through innovative sessions, field trips, mentor relationships, and the challenge to do a whole lot more than just learn a few facts, CnC lets youth take real responsibility for understanding their faith and its power. When they do - when they see the church and faith as something that truly belongs to them - it builds a bond that lasts.

After concluding the program, as a sign of their ability to take charge of their own spiritual life, each youth chooses whether or not to be confirmed. All participants, whatever their decision, are honored in a special service dedicated to their work, exploration, and discoveries.

For more information, reach out to  The Rev. Charlie de Kay.
