2024 Confirmation Class Registration Now Open.

Confirmation refers to the decision a person makes to respond to God’s grace with intentional commitment, publicly reaffirming his or her baptismal vows before the congregation, and baptism for those not previously baptized. Most confirmands are youth between the ages of ten and fourteen or older, who have been nurtured in the church since their baptism as an infant or young child; but not limited to such (up graduating 12th graders).

During this class, confirmands will learn about the meaning of their Christian faith; the founding, history and teachings of the United Methodist Church; and an explanation of the baptismal and membership vows they will be professing on Confirmation Sunday. Completion of the class will give each confirmand an opportunity to obtain full membership to FUMCPO by confession of faith and commitment to the Church.

First UMC of Port Orange typically offers the confirmation class on Wednesday evenings from 5-6p, consecutively for 8-10 weeks. Students who sign up for the class are heavily encouraged to the kickoff weekend on February 23 – 25, 2024 at the Warren Willis Camp in Fruitland Park, FL where students will participate in their first 3-4 classes.

Students are asked to consider giving a $40 donation for students ($120 for parents) for this weekend? Confirmation Sunday will be held the first Sunday in May. Speak with the Senior Pastor or Youth Minister for more information.
