Confirmation Class is a year of exploration at First United Methodist Church. Youth in sixth grade will take a closer look at what it means to become an adult in faith, what it means to make a commitment to Jesus Christ, and what it means to share in faith with Christians around the world. We use the Confirm curriculum by the United Methodist Publishing House.

The experience includes weekly class sessions during the Sunday School hour, time with an adult mentor, a weekend retreat, 2 one-day retreats, and worship opportunities with other congregations. The class culminates with a church-wide dinner and a Confirmation Worship Service. 

If you have questions about Confirmation Year, please contact the director of children & family ministries, or Kayla Carico, the director of youth ministries.
