Bishop's Confirmation Retreat


Our Alabama-West Florida Bishop invites you to Confirmation Retreat!

The Alabama-West Florida Bishop's Confirmation Retreat will be held March 11-13 at Blue Lake Camp. Join us as an individual or with a group!

The intent of the retreat is to supplement local church confirmation classes with information regarding the vows of membership: prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness through breakout groups about each topic. The retreat also serves to instill a sense of connectionalism as students hear from Bishop Graves and other clergy and laity while learning alongside students from other local churches.

Students will make a confirmation stole; learn about missions, evangelism, and prayer; and fellowship in worship and games.
