We begin our Sunday mornings together in Room 304 for a time of fellowship, laughter and most importantly, doughnuts. We welcome everyone with a time of announcements and then move into music, worship and prayer that highlights the theme or topic for the day. Finally, we break into grade-level small groups to dig a little bit deeper and to share in dialogue.
6th Grade Class (Room 310)
Re:Form OT Ancestors is a youth Bible study that helps students getto know personalities from the Old Testament. Each week we encounter, engage, and respond to stories about unlikely people that were called by God to do amazing things. Through creative activities, doodling, connecting, and journaling we encourage youth to see the similarities between themselves and their faith ancestors.
7th-8th Grade Class (Room 308)
Re:Form NT Ancestors is a youth Bible study that helps students get to know personalities from the New Testament. Each week we encounter, engage, and respond to stories about unlikely people that were called by God to do amazing things. Through creative activities, doodling, connecting, and journaling we encourage youth to see the similarities between themselves and their faith ancestors.
10th-12th Grade Class (Room 306)
Animate: Faith is a faith formation series that imaginatively explores central topics of Christianity. Each week we watch a video that features a leading voice from the Christian Faith, and then spend time together in personal reflection, journaling, and idea sharing with the group. We hope that through these discussions our high schoolers will build a solid theological foundation.
Discipleship Groups (D-Groups)
On the first Sunday of each month, Discipleship Groups offer an opportunity for peer mentorship as our middle and high schools meet together to discuss various faith questions. On these Sundays, our student leaders plan and facilitate small group discussions. Research has shown that it’s not hard or tough questions that are toxic to faith, but silence. We’re hoping to engage our youth in conversations about some of these hard questions, and lead them toward discovery of their own faith convictions.
Confirmation: An Invitation for All Ninth Graders
Confirmation is a time when our youth have a chance to explore their faith in greater depth together and ultimately decide whether this is the time they want to make a personal commitment to Jesus Christ and to become members of the church. In addition to the classroom piece, we also want the confirmation journey to provide an opportunity for the youth to find new and authentic ways to share and articulate their personal faith. We invite all 9th graders to join us for this confirmation journey. We meet each week in Room 323 from 10:00-10:45am.
