WEDNESDAY EVENING YOUTH ACTIVITIES

CONFIRMATION (GRADES 7&8)58461244_10157151008268158_9120362593494499328_o

7:20 PM – Confirmation Class (meets on the 1st, 3rd, and 4th Wednesdays)

Our confirmation ministry is designed to help the parent(s) as they share with their child what is means to be a baptized child of God and so that they might become disciples for Christ. Our confirmation ministry begins in 7th grade where students delve deeper in the Bible, the Ten Commandments, the Lord’s prayer and the sacraments.

YOUTH GROUP (GRADES 9-12)

7:30 PM – Youth Group (meets weekly)

Youth group will always be a safe place to learn, grow, question, wrestle with personal faith, invite friends, and so much more.  ALL 9th – 12th grade students, regardless of where they are in their faith journey, are welcome here!

ADDITIONAL YOUTH ACTIVITIES & OPPORTUNITIES

HIGH SCHOOL BIBLE STUDY

Thursdays @ 7:15 AM –  Bible Study (meets weekly – breakfast provided)

OASIS (GRADES 7&8)

Sunday @ 5:30 PM – Oasis (meets 1 Sunday/month)

Much like an oasis is a refuge and retreat in a desert, I want our Oasis time to be rejuvenating and refreshing. The kids can “catch their breath” before stepping into their busy week. We do this by cooking a meal together, playing games, and doing fun activities but, mostly, just by being together.
