While Oneight is the name of our Grade 8 Confirmation Class, the series we are using is called Chosen. It uses a series of dynamic videos and a workbook to engage the teens and encourage them to grow in their faith.
The name, Oneight (pronounced “one eight”), comes from Acts 1:8, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, throughout Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” These were the last words Jesus spoke to His disciples to prepare them to receive the Holy Spirit at Pentecost and these are the words Jesus speaks to the candidates as they prepare to receive a fuller out-pouring of the Holy Spirit at their Pentecost: Confirmation.
