The Jr. High Youth Programming is for youth in grades 6th - 8th grade and consists of two distinct parts: the Head to the Heart: Confirming Faith (H2H) confirmation program and the Junior High Youth Group. H2H and Youth Group meet on alternating Sundays throughout the program year. Our Youth Group is open to members and non-members alike - visitors are always welcome! For more information about the Jr High Youth Group program, click here.
This program blends the educational and discipleship components of traditional confirmation class with fellowship and fun added in. During a meeting, the youth will be grouped by grade level and gender to eat dinner, fellowship, learn a bible lesson, discuss the lesson together in their small group while using/studying their bibles, and finishing with a mini - worship experience. Small groups are encouraged to schedule fellowship and service activities outside of the program time. This program is held two Sundays a month and at the end of the 8th grade year, youth are confirmed into the church.
In addition to our Confirmation meetings, we have many other events planned throughout the year - lock-ins, retreats, service and mission events. Youth participating in the confirmation program are also invited to join our Jr High Youth Group. We are very excited about this new program in our Youth Ministries.
