Confirmation Classes Begin in September
We are excited to announce that First Church, in partnership with El Mesias UMC, will be offering Confirmation class this fall. Confirmation is a journey of faith to learn more about God and the church in order to become an adult member of the church. However, we believe that Confirmation is much more than just joining the church.
Students will have the opportunity to examine their relationship with God in a variety of ways. Through exploring scripture and church history, as well as the story and beliefs of United Methodism, students will learn what being part of God’s Kingdom can mean and how being part of a community of faith can impact our world. Along with class meetings, each teen will be assigned a mentor—an adult in the church who exemplifies their faith in impactful ways.
Weekly Confirmation classes will begin on September 6 with a parent meeting and kickoff at 6 p.m., and conclude with Confirmation Sunday on November 12. All other classes will take place during our Youth Group meetings on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8 p.m.
This is going to be a great experience for all involved, and we can’t wait to get started. For more information, please contact Caleb Fouse, Director of Youth Discipleship at firstname.lastname@example.org.
