Spiritual growth

We are all called to Spiritual Growth.
The path to that growth may vary from person to person.
Learn how you can grow spiritually here at Bluffton United Methodist Church.


Making a commitment to live as a disciple of Jesus Christ means “to give all that we know of ourselves to all that we know of God.” That initial commitment is important, but it is not the end of the matter. Christian discipleship is a journey. For many of us, preparation for that initial commitment to give ourselves fully as disciples of Jesus Christ begins with Confirmation Training. It serves as an important initial step.

At Bluffton UMC, we invite sixth grade students (and older) to commit to meet regularly over 6 months.  Includes fun field trips.  Confirmation Class will be presented to the church on Confirmation Sunday when they profess faith as members of the church.


Confirmation Students, “Confirmands,” will meet with other Confirmands and Confirmation Leaders to engage in instruction, study, inquiry, sharing, and learning about being a disciple of Christ.  Most of these Confirmands are part of Bluffton UMC because of their parents’/guardians’ decisions. We are very clear that, when they profess faith on Confirmation Sunday, it will be their decision. Many others – parents, pastors, teachers, family members, congregations members – may be very supportive of that choice, but the confirmand gets to choose: “I acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord, and I want to give my life as His disciple.” 

Confirmation Training is an important step in the journey of a lifetime. Let’s encourage and pray for our youngest disciples as they take this important step.
