Learning in our youth community focuses on understanding who we are as children of God, how we claim that identity, and how we live as disciples of Jesus in service to the world.
Confirmation Class (7th-8th grade)
Confirmation is the culmination of a two-year process that focuses on building relationships with God, each other, adult leaders, and the larger faith community. Class meets on Sunday mornings to discuss theology, spiritual practices and living our faith in the world – and there’s always an ample supply of donuts! It’s a time for youth to think critically and ask hard questions while growing in love and relationship with God and neighbor. A key focus is to help youth develop a sense of belonging in the congregation. At the conclusion of the process, 8th graders are invited to take confirmation vows during Sunday worship.
High School Meetup
High School students are invited to claim their place in the church by meeting together after worship. Each gathering centers on the month’s theological theme; recent themes include justice, gratitude, and incarnation. Fueled by bagels, our youth explore these issues through the lens of the biblical story, the world we live in, and perspectives offered by guest speakers.
