Is your seventh grader ready to grow deeper in their faith? If the answer is yes
. . . then it’s time to have them join us on our Confirmation Journey!
Click here for the Confirmation Interest Form.
Confirmation is not simply a “rite of passage.” Nor is it just a class to complete. It is a step in a life-long journey of pursuing the height, depth, and width of God’s love and making a vow to live in relationship with God for the rest of your life!
So now is the time for your “rising eighth grader” to register to participate in the upcoming Confirmation Class. As has always been our policy here at First Presbyterian Church, our recommended grade (eighth grade) for Confirmation is just that, a recommendation. We have always and will continue to confirm anyone in eighth through twelfth grades who wishes to be part of this faith formation process.
Mark your calendars now for a Parent/Guardian’s Meeting in the Fellowship Hall to review those details on Sunday, August 27thimmediately following worship. We also wanted to go ahead and provide you with some very important dates. PARTICIPATION IN ALL OF THESE ACTIVITIES IS REQUIRED! Please mark your calendars.
I will be facilitating and leading the Confirmation Retreat as well as organizing the leadership for the Sunday class sessions. Our forthcoming Associate Pastor for Christian Formation will be supporting and encouraging this year’s Confirmation class.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions about the program. I can also be reached by phone at the church office (847-362-2174).
This is an exciting time in the faith journey of your youth. This is an exciting time in the life of our church. I look forward to being a part of this adventure with you.
