It is time to plan for our 2017 Confirmation class at Long Beach First United Methodist Church. Confirmation is the decision a person makes to respond to God's grace with intentional commitment, publicly affirming his or her baptismal vows before the congregation. Confirmation is open to students in the 8th grade. We also invite older students who have not yet been confirmed to take part. Confirmation will begin on Sunday, January 22 at 9:45 in the Youth Hall with an orientation to Confirmation for both parents and students. There is also a confirmation retreat on the weekend of January 27th-29th at Seashore Assembly in Biloxi that is provided by the church. Paperwork for the retreat is due by Monday, January 9th. If your student is interested in attending, please contact Jon Kaufman or Mary Woodruff.

The Good News of Christmas is that Jesus was born to make us new. No matter where we are in life, Jesus comes to give renewal. We will begin exploring the theme of "Renewal" on January 8th at the Main Campus.
There is a common thread throughout Scripture -God uses people to accomplish His purpose here on earth. Ours is an active faith in an active God. God calls us to active participation in His Kingdom! No matter your qualifications, God wants to use you! Join us at The Well over the next few weeks as we look at different characters and stories from the Bible and how they can inspire and lead us to a life filled with purpose!
A vital part of being a disciple of Christ is spending time in the Word. We will have reading plans available in the narthex and the lobby of the Well that will help you read through the Bible in one year. Please pick one up so you can get started!
We are planning to have a work day on Saturday, January 14th at 8:00 a.m. Please mark your calendars and we will be providing further information in the future.
