First Congregational Church
United Church of Christ
The baptismal promises of a person who is baptized as an infant, or at a very young age, are made by one or more parents and (or) sponsors. These adults as well as those present at the baptism then assume responsibility to raise the baptized person in the church.
When the one who was baptized approaches adolescence, the church offers that person the opportunity to publicly confirm the promises through confirmation. Confirmation celebrates this occasion of affirmation of baptism in the life of the individual and the church.
A two-year course of study educates and prepares individuals for their affirmation of baptism. The first year of confirmation study, cover the primary areas of the Christian faith. The second year of confirmation study, are paired with an adult church member to be their mentor.
