Sunday Morning Offerings – Middle School and High School
This year we will be looking at what it means to be disciples. Following the 10AM service we will meet together for the lesson and video, then break into separate groups for discussion.
Confirmation is our mature commitment to follow Jesus Christ. In Baptism we see that Jesus chooses us. In Confirmation, we choose Jesus. Following the 10AM service, Youth considering Confirmation will gather to learn more about our faith in preparation for this mature commitment. This year the minimum age switches to 9th grade, so all Youth from 9th through 12th grade not yet confirmed are encouraged to attend.
Middle School and High School not in Confirmation
This year we will be looking at what it means to be disciples, which means sometimes we have to reform our own opinions for faith, church, and religion.
This year we will be using the Reform Curriculum to help guide us in that reforming process. During the Christian Formationl hour, those who are not in the Confirmation class will meet together for the lesson and video, then break into separate groups for discussion.

Shakespeare once said, “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts…..” He was right about his view of the world. We are merely players in this great production known as life, and as players, we play many parts. We are doctors, lawyers, students, parents, mothers and fathers… we are an assorted cast of characters, but this is nothing new. For we find ourselves in similar situations and similar lives as a number of the “supporting cast” of the Bible. In these men and women, we can see ourselves, and hopefully, see guidance for our own lives by looking at theirs. And by supporting characters I refer to all those who share a part of God’s Story and Christ’s Life.
Continuing our theme on Forming Disciples, we explore those who came before us in our Becoming the Supportive Cast Bible Study.
YOGO (Youth Outreach Going On):
Serving others is an essential aspect of discipleship. We have already made great strides in establishing a sustainable outreach, service, and mission aspect of our program. And we are just getting started.
Mondays at 4PM at Starbuck’s on Line Avenue.
This is our weekly hangout time. It allows us to have unstructured conversations that we may not get to have during our other get-togethers.
