Confirmation at First Presbyterian Church

When we were baptized, we celebrated God saying yes to us and bringing us into God’s family. Often this happens when a person is very young with no memory of pledges made that day by family, friends and the congregation about raising that child in a Christian, God-loving environment.

Confirmation is a young person’s opportunity to say yes back to God - to “confirm” what was said and done at his/her baptism.

At First Presbyterian Church in Monticello, we have a two year confirmation program for our young people in 8th and 9th grades. These classes meet most Wednesday evenings.

On Palm Sunday, the 9th graders join the church through their confirmation vows.
