Our Pastor Andrew Forrest will be leading the Youth this fall. Here is a blog post he wrote about the changes and why.
Recurring Weekly Events
We’re going to keep things simple. Our weekly programming will be on Wednesdays and will run from 7:00-8:30 PM. Middle and high school students will meet at the same time, but they will not meet together.
High School Wednesday Schedule
7:00-7:45 PM, high school worship in the youth basement with Andrew and our band. (High school is 9th-12th grades.)
7:45-8:30 PM, high school small groups and dinner/snacks on the 3rd floor.
Middle School Wednesday Schedule
7:00-7:45 PM, dinner/snacks, games, and small groups on the 3rd floor. (Middle school is 6th-8th grades.)
7:45-8:30 PM, middle school worship in the youth basement with Andrew and our band.
Wednesday night youth will follow the above schedule from September 12 through December 12. We will NOT meet on November 21 (the day before Thanksgiving), though there is a Thanksgiving Eve worship service at the church that night. (Halloween is a Wednesday this year, so stay tuned for special programming on 10/31.)
In addition to the above weekly programming, we are looking to line up Bible studies at other times, etc. Come to our kickoff on 9/5 to find out more.

Confirmation | 6th-grade breakout class
September through May 2019
Confirmation is a year-long spiritual formation program for 6th graders. 6th grade is a transition period, and we want to do our best to prepare our young people spiritually to face the challenges of middle and high school, so they can own their faith as their own. At the end of the year-long Confirmation process, the students will be commissioned in worship to go forth and take their faith into the world. Register here
Confirmation will meet on Sundays this fall during our 11:00 AM worship service, September 9-December 16. Confirmation will NOT meet on November 25 (the Sunday after Thanksgiving). In Spring 2019, Confirmation will meet January 6-May 12. Confirmation will NOT meet on March 10 or 17 (spring break) or on April 21 (Easter Sunday!).
Confirmation Sunday will be 11:00 AM on May 19.
Confirmation students need to attend 2/3 of Confirmation classes (20 out of 30 possible Sundays) to complete the course.
