Middle school youth face so many challenges as they are entering the world of adolescence.  This is a time when peer pressures, awkward changes and insecurities can influence relationships and how they feel about themselves.  We recognize what a difficult age this can be and hope that by being involved in a safe, welcoming and accepting space they will be able to build lasting friendships that will be important to them as they grow in their faith.

Confirmation

For 8th Grade Youth
September-May

Eighth grade students are invited to explore their faith through our Confirmation program. This is a 9-month program that affirms students’ baptismal vows and helps them in the decision to confirm their faith. This is an elective class that requires them to attend worship, participate in service hours, and explore all that First-Plymouth offers them. 

Both parents and students will be asked to make a commitment to this process. Students in Confirmation have meeting times and events during the week- including classes taught by the pastors, small groups lead by mentors, worship experiences and serving opportunities.  

We do not expect that every confirmand will acquire the same answers or have the same responses to issues of faith; in fact we encourage them to search for their own meaning and understanding. We do not teach confirmands what to think; we teach them how to think for themselves.

Our confirmation experience culminates in a worship service at which learners are confirmed in the Christian faith. Confirmation marks a milestone in each learner’s spiritual journey and is the beginning of a life of worship and service that lasts a lifetime.
