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 (September-April) 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 lesson schedule for November wraps up the Old Testament and dives into the New Testament. We are also excited for the annual Confirmation Retreat at Lutheran Outdoor Ministries Center, November 8-10.
November 6 — Psalms November 20 —The New Testament
November 13 — Job November 27 — No Class Thanksgiving Eve Worship at 6:30 p.m.

In June, we had 8 of our confirmation youth go to LOMC
Camp in Oregon. They explored the theme Salt and Light:
You are the SALT of the Earth. You are the LIGHT of the
World. They had a chance to go canoeing, hiking, and
ziplining. It was a fun experience for all of them!
