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 students will attend midweek Lent worship through the month of March and then meet with their small groups after worship. There will be no 6 p.m. class until after Easter— worship begins at 6:30 p.m. and small groups will conclude at 7:30 p.m. Here’s our March schedule:
March 4 — Lent Worship & Small Group
March 11 — Lent Worship & Small Group
March 18 — No Class
March 25 — No Class
Also – Save the Date for the Andover Cluster Lock-In, April 17-18 at St. Paul Lutheran Church, Orion.

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!
