 Confirmation classes are offered periodically, for youth who are ready to profess faith in Jesus Christ and to be commissioned as members of the First Presbyterian Church. Preparatory classes are offered over the course of one year, culminating in a retreat in which confirms and develops a statement of faith before they are received by the church’s Session and confirmed during a worship service.
