First Church offers a one-year Confirmation Class. This class is for youth entering the ninth grade who would like to learn more about becoming a member of First Church.

During the year, youth have the opportunity to learn about the Congregational Church as part of the United Church of Christ, as well as, explore their personal faith journey. This is a class that encourages questions. Our main focus is building community and finding our place in the larger church family. The year begins with a fun team-building activity and ends with a Spring Retreat.

After completing the class, youth interested in joining the church are received into membership on Pentecost Sunday.
