“Never Alone” Companion Bible Study on Confirmation

While YDisciple’s videos are top-notch, we know teens need more than just videos week after week. YDisciple has created a 4 session Bible study on Confirmation as a companion to our newest video series, Never Alone: Life with the Holy Spirit.

 

No videos. Just teens, their Bibles, and a caring adult guiding them (with this easy to use guide to guide the leader!) This resource was written with a team of youth ministers and in the trenches small group leaders to ensure we were writing for real teens’ needs. It gives you the tools you need to dive into a deeper understanding of the sacrament of Confirmation through sacred scripture.

 

Each session includes:

  • A detailed Leader Guide to help facilitate discussion with teens
  • Participant Guide for teens to take notes
  • Parent Guide to help parents follow up with their teens

 

While it can be completed on its own, we strongly recommend that this Bible study is facilitated after having completed the YDisciple video series, Never Alone: Life with the Holy Spirit.

 

This 4-week Bible study is not intended to give a full catechesis on the sacrament of Confirmation. Rather it is designed to help teens…

  • become more comfortable with reading the sacred scripture.
  • discover the roots of Confirmation in the Bible.
  • address common misconceptions of the sacrament.
  • and, most of all, see how the scripture applies to their lives.

 


 

Session 1: The Basics 

In this session, you will

  • consider the basic elements of Confirmation in the Bible
  • introduce simple sacramental theology
  • look at the effects of confirmation as laid out in the Catechism
  • address the misconception of Confirmation makes one an “adult in the faith”

 

Session 2: The Gifts

In this session, you will

  • discover where we find the traditional list of the Gifts of the Spirit in scripture  
  • discuss how each of these gifts apply to our lives
  • address the misconception that at Confirmation we confirm our faith

 

Session 3: The Proof

In this session, you will

  • learn about the fruit of the Holy Spirit and consider how each plays out in daily life
  • look at the effects of confirmation as laid out in the Catechism
  • address the misconception that Confirmation ought to “magically” change the confirmand

 

Session 4: The Mission

In this session, you will

  • discuss the need to evangelize – to share one’s faith
  • Connect the sacrament of Confirmation to a life of mission
  • address the misconception that Confirmation is “graduation from the Church”

 

This is designed just for you who are approaching Confirmation with a small group discipleship mindset. Think about it, with this resource alongside our two newest series, you can give your confirmation small groups 15 weeks of rock-solid content!

  • “Never Alone” (4 meetings)
  • One guided prayer session to conclude “Never Alone”
  • One week break to do a social activity, prayer event, or service project
