We have a great tradition here at First Presbyterian in our Confirmation class. Our students spend their 6th grade year of Sunday school in confirmation. This is the class that prepares students for making a public profession of faith in Jesus Christ and thereby joining our church. Of course, most importantly, this is the year we explore what it means to have a personal relationship with Christ.
Our program is entitled: The Top 35 Bible Passages: The Verses You Can't Live Without. We’ll study the essential content of the Scriptures with a particular focus on how to know God through Jesus Christ as he is revealed in his Word. Every lesson will be jam-packed with important material. Indeed, of all the things your child will study and do this year, none will be as important as Confirmation class. We can make such a bold claim not because we at the church are so great, but because God’s Word is the truth that leads to everlasting life. We want your children to have the knowledge that leads to salvation and an eternal loving relationship with God.
In these pivoting stay-at-home COVID-19 days, we are trying something new for our April 26 Confirmation class. Prior to our Zoom class at 9 am on the 26th, each student is required to watch the below video from Gerrit then answer the Questions of Membership. Please text or email the answered questions to Jessica Saffell (firstname.lastname@example.org or 225-921-2175).
Below are two informational documents for both parents and student. Click the image to view an overview of the Confirmation class. And the link below is the document students are to use for their required sermon notes.
