Crossroads: Middle School Bible Study
Sundays, 10:00am, in Room 205
Mr. Machalek & Mrs. Crisp will be leading the Middle School class through Echo: The Story this year. Through reflection, response, and discussion, we’ll follow the story of God in the Bible, from Creation to Jesus to the Early Church. What do these stories mean to you? Where do you find God in them and in your life?
The Well: A High School Bible Study
Sundays, 10:00am, in Room 206
JD, Tracy, & Kristen will be leading the High School class through Fathom, where we will take a deep dive into the Bible and the story of God. We begin with an exploration of the Bible itself - its history, genres, storylines, and interpretation. We’ll then spend the rest of the year on the Old Testament. What is new to you? What will you find?
One of the most important rites of passage for young people in the United Methodist Church is Confirmation - the opportunity for young people to take the next step on their faith journey, and make a commitment to God and to being a part of the Body of Christ.
Confirmation is open to youth in at least 7th grade.
Our next Confirmation Class will be in the 2018-19 school year.
