We encourage you to connect with our teaching team at any time, whether you have questions, or just want more information.
Does my Confirmand have to become a member?
All students are encouraged to explore membership at FPCG, but membership is not a required as a part of the Confirmation class.
What if we have an unavoidable conflict with one of the requirements?
The requirements are to ensure that our Confirmands have adequate exposure to both the content of the class, as well as the relationships they will build. That said, we will make every effort to accommodate unavoidable conflicts that arise.
What does my Confirmand need to bring to class?
Please encourage your Confirmand to bring her/his Bible to every class. Familiarity with one's own copy of the Scriptures is an important part of listening to God's voice and learning about who He is.
Are parents allowed to attend classes and service projects?
While the course itself is designed specifically for students, parents are encouraged to participate in service projects, church-wide events, and other activities where volunteers may be needed.
How will I know what was covered during any given class?
Following each class, we will follow up with you directly to let you know what was covered, what activities the class participated in, and how you can continue the conversation with your Confirmand throughout the week.
What is the Mentor Program?
We will pair each Confirmand with a sponsor (either a Deacon or other qualified church member) in January. This person will meet with the Confirmand periodically, pray for them regularly, and provide ongoing support as we explore this faith journey together.
How do I sponsor a lunch for the class?
During each class session, the Confirmands will share a meal together. The first Sunday will be sponsored by the church, and we ask you to please sign up to provide lunch (either home-made or catered) for the group at least once this year. If you would like to sponsor a lunch, contact Andre Castillo at email@example.com.
So, my student is confirmed... Now what?
Now that your student is confirmed, she/he is invited to be an active, voting member of FPCG. Once a member, a Confirmand can participate in any way that all other members participate. Regardless of their membership decision, students are then welcomed into the high school programs at FPCG, beginning with the Mission Trip to the Dominican Republic and the Winter Youth Summit.
