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.
Confirmation and High School youth are invited to come to the Youth Kick-Off at the Gustafson Farm on Sunday, August 18 from 4-7 p.m. There will be swimming, games, a zipline, a bonfire and lots of food! They are welcome to bring a friend! RSVP to Haylee Gustafson, Director of Youth & Family Ministry, if you are coming! It’s going to be a blast!
• Mark your calendars! Confirmation will start Wednesday, September 4.

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!
