Confirmation

Contact: Emily Yergler at emilyy@fpcsat.org  

In the Presbyterian Church we have a tradition of celebrating our young people when they are ready to make a commitment to the life of the church in a formal way. We do this through the process of Confirmation. This class meets Sunday mornings during the 9:30 AM education hour and is open to all interested youth in grades 8–12. Through teaching of Old and New Testament surveys, Church history, creeds/confessions, and worship we explore what it means to be a follower of Jesus as Presbyterian Christians.

Students learn through interactive large group teaching, small group discussions and one-on-one mentoring with an adult from the congregation. We celebrate our young people at a special Confirmation Banquet, joined by their parents, mentors and officers of the church. At this dinner, students read their faith statements and take their vows of membership.

Middle School Retreat

March 29th-31st, 2019

Retreats are a great way to get away from it all and have a great time playing games and learning about Jesus! Each year the middle school students get out in the wilderness at one of the amazing camps around San Antonio. We play crazy games, make crafts, go on nature walks, eat s’mores, talk about God, and just hang out. It is an awesome time spent with each other away from all of our electronics.

Middle School Mission Trip

Each summer the middle school blocks out a week and dedicates it to serving others in the loving name of Jesus Christ. The year we are going down to the Valley to serve and spread the name of Jesus while building relationships with locals in that area. This trip is open to 6th-8th grade students.

First Presbyterian Church is partnering with World Vision to help Children in desperate need of resources and love.

The church is focusing on Mutendere, Malawi. The youth ministry is sponsoring a young boy named John Mvula. We will be collecting money to support him each Sunday morning. We will also be writing him cards and emails, as well as praying for him continually. We would love for you to partner with us in any way you want.

Please contact Emily Yergler at emilyy@fpcsat.org for information on making donations or personally sponsoring a child through World Vision.
