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.
Thank you to those in Geneseo community who helped us collect food items for the Geneseo Food Pantry during this year’s Boo-4-Food! In November, we will continue our study of the Small Catechism. We will also spend the weekend of November 9-11 at Lutheran Outdoor Ministries Center in Oregon, IL, growing our faith through music, Bible study, fellowship, and fun! Here’s our November schedule:
• November 7 — The Lord's Prayer
• November 14 — Holy Baptism
• November 21 — No Class (Thanksgiving break)
• November 28 — Holy Communion

Confirmation Summer Camp at LOMC
In June, we had 8 of our confirmation youth go to
