confirmation youth (gr 6 - 8)
Wednesdays during the school year, following pizza at 6:00 pm, youth gather for large group instruction (6:30 - 7:15 pm) and small group discussion (7:15 - 8:00 pm) to grow in faith, ask questions, stretch our minds and faith, serve together, and deepen our relationships as a group. Small group leaders are parents, high school youth, and other adults who act as "guides."
Confirmation youth in grades 6 - 8 select their own adult "mentors" each year for a season of conversation over five consecutive Wednesday nights during Lent, from 6:00 - 8:00 pm. Mentor training, conversation starters, delicious soup suppers, and Lenten worship, contribute to make this a great experience for everyone.
During the school year, confirmation youth meet at 9:45 am on Sunday mornings to explore topics most relevant to them, and engage in learning through a lens of faith. The Faith Lens curriculum -- together with unique opportunities to serve, pray, and play -- connects world events with the Bible, faith, and everyday life.
Faith Milestones are a time for us to be intentional about the different ages, stages, and transitions of life, blessing confirmation youth in worship and encouraging families and the congregation in the promises made at baptism.
Confirmation affords the opportunity for summer camp each year, rotating between a wilderness experience and more traditional camp settings.
