who we are

At StudentLife of Springfield First, our mission is to help build students into disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. 

Through ministry based on worship, discipleship, service, and outreach, we strive to help develop these students into young men and women of strong character and faith!

StudentLife is open to all students grades 6th through 12th!

Confirmation is the time when a student makes a commitment to God, reaffirms his or her baptismal vows, and is received as a full member of Springfield First

There will be a 13-week class in preparation for this important event. Throughout the course, students will learn about the meaning of the Christian faith, the history of the United Methodist Church, and the significance of baptismal and membership vows. 
Confirmation is open to all students grades 8th and up!
