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.
Please pray for our students and mentors as we begin classes for the 2019-2020 year! This year, we have
7 students who will completing their second year of the program and 5 students beginning the program. In addition, we have a team of awesome adult mentors who attend class and lead discussion and activities each week. 2019-2020 is our year to focus on the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation.
September 4 — The Hebrew Bible September 18 — Exodus
September 11 — Genesis September 25 — Law
Also, we invite prayers for our 13 students who have completed the two year program and are preparing for
the Rite of Confirmation on October 27!
