First's Confirmation is a two-year program for students (7th grade and older) in which adolescents explore their faith,
ask questions, grow in their knowledge of Scripture and the church, and build relationships.
At regular times throughout the year the students also engage in service projects and social events. Friends are always welcome to attend, and you do not have to be a member of First in order to participate in our confirmation activities.
Our 20 students have completed their overview of the Small Catechism and will spend the next few months applying what they have learned. December brings the following lessons from our “Lutheran Living” unit:
• December 5 — Service Project
• December 12 — Law & Gospel
• December 19 — Saint & Sinner (and Christmas Party!)
• December 26 — No Class (Thanksgiving break)

Confirmation Summer Camp at LOMC
In June, we had 8 of our confirmation youth go to
LOMC Camp in Oregon, IL. They had a chance to go
canoeing, hiking, ziplining and learn more about God’s
love and grace. It was a fun experience for all of them!
