Script #36


The orientation for this year's Confirmation Class will be on February 26 at 2:45 p.m. in the chapel.

For the particulars, please see below.

The information will also appear in the February edition of our newsletter.

Blessings and Love!


An opportunity for younger family members at First to “confirm” baptismal promises begins on February 26 at 2:45 p.m. in the chapel with a brief orientation for parents and confirmands.

All confirmation classes will be on Sundays in the meeting room (#3 of CE Wing) from 8:30 – 9:30 a.m.

A class for the parents of confirmands will be held at the same time (location TBA).


March 4:  Getting to Know Each Other
                 What Membership/Discipleship is All About

March 11: Pillars of Faith: The Sovereignty of God

March 18: Pillars of Faith: The Centrality of Jesus

March 25: Pillars of Faith: The Power & Presence of the Holy Spirit

April 1:      Pillars of Faith: The Bible

April 8:      Pillars of Faith: The Priesthood of All Believers

                   Reception in Fellowship Hall

Enrollment in the class is determined by parents and children in consultation with me.  Normally, confirmands are in seventh – twelfth grade; however, that decision is confirmed by the discernment to approach the rights and responsibilities of membership/discipleship as explained during orientation on February 26.

Please call Karen at (815) 544-6402 or e-mail her at to express your interest in this year’s class.

Blessings and Love!
