Is your church offering Confirmation this year? The Bi-District, Arlington & Alexandria, is offering a single-day Confirmation Retreat at Camp Highroad.

This event is designed for small confirmation classes in order to offer a larger group experience during the confirmation process. The focus of the retreat is the three forms of GRACE.

We have intentionally moved this event to the end of March in the hopes that we will have good weather and can be outside for much of our day. We will also limit registration numbers in order to maintain distance within our indoor space.

Participants will stay with those from their own church during the event and we plan to limit cross-church contact as much as possible.

The retreat organizers will evaluate COVID positivity rates in the area and make determinations of masking and distance requirements in the weeks prior to the event. These will be communicated to registered churches.

The retreat costs $15/person.

Registration has closed for the Confirmation Retreat!
