Growing in Faith Together
At 9:30 Sunday mornings we encourage middle and high school youth to attend worship with their families or help out with Kids’ Church. Then at 11:00, all youth are invited to join us for G.I.F.T. Class “Growing in Faith Together.” This is an important time of faith development as we dig deeper into how faith is relevant in our daily lives. Youth and adult leaders develop long-term relationships through conversation and engaging activities about life and faith. Topics focus on how faith can play a central role in a teenager’s life.
Join us for added programming from 10:30-11:00 as youth and adults lead fun and engaging Children’s Music in the Student Center. Interested in singing those fun and silly songs you remember from your time as a kid in the church? Email Allison Marcus, Director of Student Ministries, to sign up to help!
Sunday Afternoons Re-imagined
All middle and high school youth are invited to participate in Youth Group and Fellowship with snacks every Sunday, 4:00-6:00pm (unless a special event is planned). Youth will have a blast while coming together in a faith community. Friends are always welcome! Contact Allison Marcus for more information.
Our confirmation program is designed for Youth who are in grade 9 and above. It consists of 90-minute weekly sessions and runs from January through May. Our goal is to nurture confirmands as they grow closer in relationship to God and to each other as they explore more about their faith. Outside of the weekly sessions, confirmands visit other worship settings, participate in community service and meet monthly with a mentor. The confirmands write a Statement of Faith together and participate in a group confirmation ceremony during worship.
Each summer our youth grow in faith as they serve in missions. Stay tuned for next summer’s plans!
