Starting in January 2021, Confirmation programming will be offered to all high school youth at First Church. This will be a series of classes and faith experiences where each teen will be encouraged to explore their faith more intentionally, learn more about Christianity and the church, and deepen their relationship with God and others. Like with Baptism, Confirmation signals an intention to engage in a lifelong journey of faith and become a full member of the church. Confirmation is also an experiential and relationship experience and will require a full commitment from each participant.
For those teens who wish to participate in the Confirmation program, sign-up forms are available here and will be mailed directly to each teen. Once completed, the forms can be mailed directly to the church (292 E. Market Street, Akron, 44308) or emailed to Pastor Antigoné no later than Friday, December 4.
There will be an Orientation meeting held online for each teen who signs up, along with their parents/guardians on Sunday, December 6 from 1:30-2:30pm. We hope that your teen will prayerfully consider joining us on this Confirmation journey!
