YOUTH CHRISTIAN FORMATION OFFERINGS – Click here for registration form.

 
Youth classes run from 9:00-10:15am.
  • The Rites of Passage Class (Rite 13: 6th-7th Grades) – Room 12: A major component of J2A is the way it is structured around Rites of Passage that mark the transition of young people from childhood to adulthood.
  • J2A Class (8th-9th Grades) – Room 3: This class begins a two-year preparation for a Holy Pilgrimage. This sacred journey has the potential to transform not just the young pilgrims who travel, but also the congregation who has sent them forth.
  • YEA (10th-12th Grades) – Room 14: The YEA class has learned to pray, to share their faith with each other and they have traveled to sacred places where others have found God. This last piece of the journey into adulthood seeks to actively equip and enable them to be a part of God’s healing presence in the world. Confirmation is offered in this class.
We rejoice to announce that Nathan Medley, our Director of Music, will also be working with the children and youth on a regular basis as a part of their Sunday morning Christian Formation.
