discipleship pathway

At Canyon Lake, we care deeply about creating disciples of Jesus who are growing closer to God and one another. To that end, we have a discipleship path that helps foster spiritual growth for both the newest Christians and the life-long Christians. This path is both our Confirmation curriculum and a requirement for membership at Canyon Lake, but we encourage everyone in our community to participate. 

Each inter-generational session is 10-weeks long, with one session in the Fall (Sept. 15 - Nov. 17) and one in the Spring (Jan. 12 - March 22). We will meet in the Christian Life Center Classroom 1. Membership/Confirmation Sundays are December 1 and March 29.
