Commit 2018 offers a brand new format for local church Confirmation Classes to meet our Bishop, worship together, and dig deeper into this thing we call Discipleship and possibly explore one of our Conference camps. After many years of hosting classes on multiple days at the United Methodist Center in Cranberry Township for a brief sampling of several ministries, we're taking the show on the road for three of the sessions to cut down on travel time for groups and allow for more active breakout sessions.
In 2018, group leaders can choose to attend a regional gathering at one of our three camps -- or select one of two dates at the Conference Center. Space will be limited at all of our locations, so register as soon as possible. (If you choose one of the camps, consider turning it into a retreat by booking an overnight stay and exploring the camp facilities. Overnight reservations must be made with the individual camps -- and will require payment of fees.)
Confirmation Class Dates and Locations:
- March 3, Saturday - Jumonvillle - 10am - 3pm
- March 9, Friday - Camp Allegheny - 10am - 3pm
- April 6, Friday - Conference Center - 10am - 3pm
- April 7, Saturday - Conference Center - 10am - 3pm
- April 14, Saturday - Wesley Woods - 10am - 3pm
Reservations are on a first-come, first-served basis and space is expected to fill quickly. Please have a confirmed number of students and adults in your group when you register. Lunch will be provided at all sites and we need accurate numbers to order and prepare food. If you are unable to attend after you register your group, or the number of students/adults changes, contact Rev. Greg Cox.
Sign-in for each gathering will begin at 9:30 a.m. The event will begin promptly with worship at 10 a.m.
In the unlikely event of snow or weather cancellations, we will alert all participants of cancellations only. We will also follow up as soon as possible with notice through email. In the event of a weather delay, we will operate on a normal schedule throughout the day.
School Release Forms
For the Friday gatherings, we encourage you to download this School Release form, print it out on church letterhead and send it to the student's school to properly excuse the student from class on the day of the event.
