We’re here to engage fifth through eighth graders in a live-giving faith and to connect you with peers who are on the same faith journey. We teach the Bible in a relevant way and connect you with caring adults who can encourage you in your faith and guide you through life’s challenges.
Confirmation Classes - April 8
It’s that time of year again when student ministries has its Confirmation/Foundations of Faith Class. This year, once again, we are excited to offer a class that will provide more time for Q&A, expanded content and the building of community within the confirmation/foundations of faith class. Confirmation/Foundations of Faith class is the call that your student will take if he/she is looking to be baptized, reaffirm their baptism (if baptized as an infant), and/or to become a Covenant Partner (membership) of First Pres. This class is offered to all 7th -12th graders on Sunday mornings at 10 am. The classes will start on April 8th and continue through May 6th with confirmation in services on May 13th.
