My name is Dylan Hilburn and I ‘m going through Confirmation this year. To me, Confirmation is one of the biggest events in my life because I am confirming my belief in Jesus, God, and the Holy Spirit. I also get a name tag and get to join the church!
As part of confirmation, every kid got a mentor. Mine was Mr. Pete. I’ve enjoyed spending time with him. He came to our house for dinner and we went to their club house for lunch. We’ve discussed many things that I’ve learned in confirmation. I like being able to talk about what I’m learning with him. I feel like me and Mr. Pete are going to be friends even after I’m confirmed.
I have learned so much about the Methodist Church and the people that founded it. In Confirmation class, we have covered some pretty deep topics. Some of them were Salvation, Life after death, History of the church, our beliefs, and so much more. This was important to me because it helped me understand my faith on a deeper level. In a couple of weeks, I will make a big step in my journey with God by getting baptized and confirmed.
