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.
Confirmation class continues to meet weekly as we complete our study of Lutheran Living. Please continue to pray for our 20 students and 5 volunteer mentors as we dive into some significant and weighty themes. The students’ observations and questions always keep our discussions and activities lively! Our February schedule includes the following exciting topics:
• February 6 — Bondage of the Will • February 20 — The Devil
• February 13 — Two Kingdoms • February 27 — Doubt
• Save the Date! — Lock-In
