Telling Our Story: Bible Art is a series of 40 paintings done by 41 artists illustrating the biblical story from God’s creation through the story of Pentecost.
Confirmation looks different this year! 7th and 8th graders meet for a 4-hour “mini retreat” one Sunday afternoon a month with Pastors Betsy and Peter and Cori our youth director. This more intensive time together includes a variety of activities and learning techniques – storytelling, digging into the Bible, drawing, skits, games, discussion time, highs and lows, quiet reflection, discussion, and sharing a meal together. Students are focusing on the biblical narrative with the goal of being able to “Tell our Story” on a deeper level and understand how faith applies to life.
Summer is quickly coming to a close! As the youth are winding down summer, I look forward to the opportunities to engage with them on a more consistent basis. This fall we will dive right into Wednesday night programming starting September 5th, and Sunday morning programs which really won’t look “normal” until the end of September.
