↑ Return to Youth

Confirmation Program

DC 2011Discipleship and Confirmation is a two year program exploring the Old and New Testaments, as well as the history of the Church. It is a weekly class that meets for all seventh and eight graders, together for the purpose of understanding and applying what the Word of God contains.

The program has its roots in the rich Covenant tradition of training and “confirming” its junior high students, some of whom were baptized as infants. The goal of the program is to introduce Christ to those who do not know Him, to deepen a commitment to Christ that is already made, and to prepare our students for a life of service to God.

We offer an excellent classroom experience, life application through class time, daily devotional materials, a spiritual mentor, prayer, and opportunities for living out your faith. You’ll receive “The Journey” book and a new NLT Study Bible.

A spiritual mentor is an important element in the spiritual growth of youth. God calls parents and the church (Deut. 6:4-7, Eph. 6:1-4) to work in partnership to spiritually nurture children. A mentor is one who will encourage youth in their relationship with Christ. Our curriculum encourages parents to participate with their students by committing to be a mentor for their student.

Outreach: FCC believes that teaching students how to use their faith in practical, tangible ways is a necessary part of this discipleship experience.  D/C requires participation in monthly outreach opportunities; parents are encouraged to take part in these various opportunities to serve and work alongside students. Opportunities include:

*Feed the homeless breakfast, Open Door Mission, Mission for All Nations, Retirement Home Visit

*Operation Christmas Child, Hope Center for Kids, 30-hour Famine, Habitat for Humanity

*Clean up one of the North Omaha, Clean a park with Keep Omaha Beautiful

Please email the Church Office to find out how you can sign up for the Discipleship and Confirmation Class beginning Fall of 2014.

Expectations:

Attendance is critical to a successful D/C experience, and one of the few areas we can evaluate confidently. The D/C administration will review attendance to the following: classes, worship services, and outreach opportunities. To benefit fully from this journey of faith, you need to be there!

Below, you’ll find two documents. The first is to help parents and students pick a mentor, and the second is the job description for those interested in becoming mentors.
