Confirmation Class is Forming

Confirmation_image2

Confirmation equips students to employ the study of Scripture, tradition, and church to tell their own story as Christian believers in the context of their congregational experiences.  

Recently, communication has gone out to all families who have a student of confirmation age regarding interest in a class this year and preferences about timing and schedules. If you fall into this category and missed the email communication, please contact Pastor Katie at kestes@firstpresgreenbay.org or (920) 437-8121.

If there’s enough interested in confirmation, a 2021 class will begin later in September.
