Confirmation

Children are an important part of our church life at First Congregational United Church of Christ. From Confirmation to Faith in Motion to Young Children’s Church, we’re proud to offer a variety of programs for youth in our church and in the wider community. 

Confirmation is a year-long process with three blocks of classes, as well as time for participants to explore church life.

In 2018, classes are being held on Wednesday nights at 6pm:

Sept. 5th through Oct. 24 (except Oct. 3)
Jan. 30th through Feb. 27th
April 24th through May 8th

Faith in Motion

Spring 2019 Faith in Motion begins on March 27 and runs for 8 weeks, culminating with a cook out and Parents vs. Kids kickball game on May 15th.

The spring theme is Lean on Me. The youth will explore all of the great people they can lean on for support, from parents to teachers to Jesus.

We will meet in the Central DeWitt Intermediate School gym. 2nd through 4th graders meet from 5:30pm to 6:30pm. 5th through 7th graders meet from 6:30pm to 7:30pm.

Young Children's Church

Young Children’s Church is a time for our younger friends to learn about God with their peers and our helpful volunteers. Pre-K kids through second graders are invited to leave church services after the children’s sermon and participate in learning and activities that is appropriate for their age. Depending on the Sunday, they return either for communion or at the end of the worship service.

Spring 2019 Young Children’s Church will take place during worship (after the Time with Young Worshippers in the service) from March 3rd through April 28th.

Learning to Use My Bible

Learning to Use My Bible is a six week mini-class that teaches basic Bible literacy through a fun hands-on approach. Second through fifth grade youth are invited to leave church services after the children’s sermon and learn about our scriptures. Depending on the Sunday, they return either for communion or at the end of the worship service.

Spring 2019 Learning to Use My Bible will take place during worship (after the Time with Young Worshippers in the service) from March 3rd through April 7th.
