First Church had 16 Confirmands received in May 2017.
Our Confirmation program schedules classes from September through May every 2 years,
with the next class in September 2018.
Confirmation is the continuation of one’s faith journey (a journey begun at Baptism) and the beginning of one’s covenant relationship with the church. Parent involvement and worship attendance are required to complete Confirmation.
The previous confirmation class studied the life and message of the apostle Paul. The class explored the Jewish, Catholic, Protestant, and United Methodist roots of our faith. The confirmands also engaged in mission projects throughout the year; examples were Sleep-Out Saturday (for Dupage P.A.D.S.), Grace Cafe, Youth Breakfast Ministry, and Justice for our Neighbors (an outreach program of the Northern Illinois Conference.)
