In our church, parents baptize their children and promise on their behalf to raise them as people of faith. As youth grow in their faith, they study and reflect on the teachings of Jesus. They prepare a personal statement of faith before they confirm their commitment to the church community.
At FPC, we typically have a confirmation class every 1-3 years, depending on the ages of the youth in our congregation. Our next confirmation class of middle school students will be in the 2017-2018 school year. They meet regularly for a year-long Bible study, developing a statement of faith, and confirming their understanding of Christian life.
