8th - 12th GRADES
Youth CAFÉ – Confirmation and Faith Enrichment
Our 8th grade Confirmands and Senior High youth gather each Sunday at Youth Café. Students will explore their faith through a comprehensive multi-media curriculum, discussion, games, art and music. The class culminates in May with each Confirmand preparing and presenting their personal Statement of Faith. This is a truly rewarding experience for our youth, as they begin to grow in their individual faith journeys.
By bringing the youth together for this time each week, everyone will have an opportunity to learn from each other through our discussions, and perhaps even re-learn something from a new perspective. Any student who has not been confirmed has an opportunity to participate in Confirmation. The Confirmation class also has two retreats in the Fall and Spring to Windy Ridge Camp.
Students in the Youth Café will be encouraged to gather Biblical knowledge, ask questions, and seek answers so that they can make their faith truly their own. Using the Sparkhouse Colaborate Presbyterian Confirmation curriculum, they will learn and discuss the essential elements of the Christian faith, Presbyterian history and doctrine, and the Old and New Testaments. This class is led by the Director of Youth Ministries and the Director of Children’s and Family Ministries.
