sundays 9:15am

Our youth sunday school is a wonderful atmosphere for youth to learn more about how our lives are part of the grander narrative of God’s story. Exploring the Bible as God’s story allows our youth to see the unique value of their own life story and the lives of others.

Confirmation Class

sundays 9:15am (certain times during the year)

ur confirmation class, designed for 6th and 7th grade students, teaches the principles of the United Methodist church, preparing them to confirm their faith in Jesus Christ and join the United Methodist Church. Confirmation is a wonderful experience that allows the youth to explore the intricacies of faith and the details of the United Methodist tradition in a fun-filled experiential manner.
