Affirming Faith Resources | Revised and Updated (Dipko)
Studying the UCC Statement of Faith
The United Church of Christ Statement of Faith is the core of the Affirming Faith confirmation resource for youth ages 12-16. This multifaceted resource contains two pieces -- Affirming Faith: A Congregation's Guide to Confirmation and Affirming Faith: A Confirmand's Journal -- and is designed to assist congregations in leading youth in faith information.
The Congregation's Guide (Leader Guide) includes session plans, retreat plans, biblical and theological helps, music, liturgical resources, and a glossary of terms. Order one copy per leader.
The Confirmand's Journal (Student Book) is a guidebook for the confirmation journey that gives background information for each session, and contains scriptures, stories, and prayers. It asks important questions that can be discussed in a group or contemplated on one's own. Journaling space is provided for each student to personally reflect about God and their faith. Order one copy per student.
