“What are God’s dreams for the world?” This is a question that we posed to the 7th and 8th grade Confirmation students recently. The Confirmation students are studying the Biblical Narrative this year and spent the day at church on Good Friday. They assisted with the Good Friday Family Service, served as the clean-up crew for the grilled cheese lunch, and they got their hands dirty as they created a model of the empty tomb for Easter Sunday worship.read more
Our new Faith Formation format includes a gathering time activity for all ages, followed by song and story, led by one of the pastors. Then preschoolers have more music, craft and game time while the elementary students have music with Children’s Music Director Melissa Burke and then an activity relating to the story that may be a game, art, scavenger hunt or other activity.read more
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.read more
