Confirmation I and Confirmation II: Our confirmation program at First Church is taught by the Pastors and it is designed to help our young people confirm their faith and to prepare them for Church membership. It begins with an eighth grade confirmation I class and moves on to a ninth grade confirmation II class, although some high school students choose to take the class later on. Our confirmation program involves a commitment to worship and learning.
