Confirmation is an opportunity for students to grow in knowledge and understanding of the Christian life, and to be equipped with tools to nurture their faith. During confirmation students build up the foundation of their faith through learning about key Christian doctrines and the Apostles Creed to learn about the essentials of the Christian life. At First Pres we believe that often, by the time that a student reaches the eighth grade, they may be ready to go deeper in their Christian faith. For our students that may have been baptized as infants, we want to continue the covenant between the Lord, church, and parents. We want to make sure our students remember their baptism through the work of the Holy Spirit through confirmation.
