confirmation

We will finally be confirming our 2019-2020 class of confirmands on Easter Sunday, April 4, 2021! Congratulations to Adam, Crawford, Cynthia, and Daxin!

The 2020-2021 confirmation class opted to wait until we can meet in-person again and have retreats and field trips, which are important to the full confirmation experience. The hope is to begin fully in-person in the fall of 2021 with an overnight retreat.

With this adaptation due to the pandemic, our pastors and staff at FUMC have decided upon a permanent shift of confirmation from 6th grade to 7th grade.

Feel free to contact kcarico@fumcor.org with any questions.

Confirmation is a year of exploration at First United Methodist Church. Youth in seventh grade will take a closer look at what it means to grow up 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.

The experience traditionally 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 Kayla Carico, the director of youth ministries.
