First Church will offer a confirmation class for 7th and 8th graders beginning in September of 2016 and ending with the confirmation ceremony in May of 2017.
Confirmation is the continuation of one’s faith journey (a journey begun at Baptism)
The present confirmation class is currently studying the life and message of the apostle Paul. After that, the class will explore the Jewish, Catholic, Protestant, and United Methodist roots of our faith. The confirmands are also engaging in mission projects throughout the year; Sleep-Out Saturday, Grace Cafe, Youth Breakfast Ministry, and Justice for our Neighbors (an outreach program of the Northern Illinois Conference.)
