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 year is off to a great start! We are using Luther’s Small Catechism this fall to explore our faith.
the evening of October 24, the Confirmation students and high school youth group will be participating in
Boo-4-Food, a service project to collect food items for the Geneseo-Atkinson Food Pantry. The students
will divide up the town of Geneseo and knock on doors (trick-or-treat style), asking for food donations.
If we come to your door, please be generous! Here’s our schedule:
• October 3 — Apostles' Creed, Article 1
• October 10 — Apostles' Creed, Article 2
• October 17 — Apostles' Creed, Article 3
• October 24 — Boo-4-Food Service Project
• October 31 — No Confirmation — Happy Halloween!

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!
