5:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. on Sunday Evenings
Starting in September and continuing throughout the school year, Sunday night is Youth Group for 6th - 12th graders and their friends. We gather at 5:30 pm. to eat dinner together. After dinner, from 6:15 - 7:15 pm, we split into Middle School (Confirmation Prep) and High School groups, and youth participate in Scripture based lessons that dive into issues and topics relevant to today’s youth. The lessons include Scripture, creative games/activities, and space for tough questions and authentic conversation. Following our lesson time, we come back together again for a group game or activity, and then we end with prayer. In addition to weekly Youth Group, we also have meaningful mission projects, lock-ins, and Sunday Fun Day outings throughout the year.
Come and join us on Sunday evenings and share in fun, faith, and fellowship!
Confirmation Core (8th Graders)
Confirmation Core is a program for 8th grade students who are interested in becoming full members of the congregation. Confirmation is typically a journey that each young person in the church takes at a time when they claim their faith for themselves. This is a very special and sacred time in a young person’s life, and we are excited to walk with them. Starting after Easter Sunday, we will meet for six Sundays in the Spring for lunch and conversation about our Presbyterian identity, other faith traditions, the Book of Order, the Book of Confessions, discerning and cultivating our spiritual gifts, and what it means to be a member of Christ Presbyterian Church. There may even be opportunities to visit other places of worship, such as a synagogue, mosque, temple, or Catholic church, to experience a service. At the end of the Confirmation program, Confirmands will be invited to a half-day retreat, where they will get the opportunity to develop their own statement of faith and think creatively about how they will share this faith and their spiritual gifts with the congregation.
