Confirmation is an experience for 8th graders in the spring. It is 12 weeks of intense study and great questions. We work hard, but we have a ton of fun too. We ask questions like: What does it means to be Presbyterian? What does it mean to be a Christian? What is the Bible? etc. At the end of the experience each participant will write their own faith statement to share with the session. After wrestling with hard questions of faith each youth will decide if active membership in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is what God is calling them to. If you are in 8th grade look for more information in December.
Sunday afternoons: In general, we will meet on Sunday afternoons starting in January in the middle school room upstairs. Each week we will talk about a different topic.
Curriculum: We use a variety of sources, but our primary curriculum will be re:Form.
Covenant Partners: Each confirmand will be connected with a leader from the church with whom they will meet. They will help with faith statements and they really want to get to know you.
Retreat: This is a chance to get away, engage in actual retreat, and do some great spiritual practices. We will work on our faith statements and have a ton of fun just being away from it all.
Ash Wednesday Service: we help lead the Ash Wednesday service at church. playing a big role in preparing our church family for lent.
Journey at Druid Hills Night Shelter: In March we head to Druid Hills to serve and eat dinner with the residents. We need parents for this evening who are willing to drive and help us make food. More details to come. It’s a great opportunity to serve and get to know some people we probably wouldn’t get to know otherwise.
