Confirmation is a time to learn more about what it means to be a follower of Christ, and an opportunity to take faith on for yourself. It's a time to learn, ask questions, and understand more of what being a Christian and a Methodist is all about.
On January 5th, 2020, we started Confirmation Class. Here at First UMC, we have a hybrid confirmation class. This means we will meet both online and in the classroom. Some weeks of the confirmation class will meet online only.
*In Class Weeks: Confirmation classes will meet in the Youth Wing at 9:40am. Rev. Katie will meet with them. If a Confirmand has to miss an in class week, the videos, lessons, and homework will always be posted on this page.
*Online Weeks: During Sunday School, Confirmands are invited to join in with Youth Sunday School. During the week, each Confirmand will come to this website where they will find short videos, lessons, and homework.
*Homework: Both in class and online weeks have weekly homework assignments that can be found on this webpage.
Each Confirmand will email the completed assignment to by the following Sunday.
Ex: If we study Grace on March 10th, then the homework for Grace will be due on March 17th.
Please note that while having online lessons gives you great flexibility on when the lesson is completed, the Confirmands will have to show self-discipline to log-on each week, watch the video, read the fun facts, and complete/submit the worksheet before the next Sunday. I hope this gives an opportunity for Confirmation to be something the whole family can participate in together, by creating deeper discussions in the homework.
I pray this hybrid method is convenient and easy for you. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask me!
