Sixth Grade Confirmation
September – January | Sundays | 9:30 – 10:45 am
Justin Youth Building | 801 W. 5th St.
At First United Methodist Church of Fort Worth, all sixth graders are invited to join the Confirmation class. Confirmation is a continuation of the faith journey; and it is the beginning of a lifetime of commitment to the church. It is a special time set aside to learn about who God is, what United Methodist Christians believe, and what it means to be not only a member of a church, but also a disciple of Jesus Christ in our world.
We call it “Confirmation” because we’re confirming our baptisms. Confirmands will “remember their baptism” (or, if they have not yet been baptized, anticipate their baptism) and learn about the baptismal vows that they will take or that were taken on their behalf. Confirmation is a way to claim and affirm the work done by the Holy Spirit in and since their baptism.
