MIDDLE SCHOOL – Grades 7 & 8
Middle School youth spend the Sunday School time diving into the story where they engage with the text and learn how the story of the Bible is part of their story. Each year the class uses the follow curriculum—alternating each year—for their journey through the Bible. Join us for an adventure that is not to be missed.
For the 2018-2019 Program Year: The Story – The Bible As One Continuing Story of God and His People.
“The Greatest Story Ever Told” is more than just a cliché. God goes to great lengths to rescue lost and hurting people. That is what The Story is all about—the story of the Bible, God’s great love affair with humanity.
The Story will sweep learners into the unfolding progression of Bible characters and events from Genesis to Revelation. Using the clear, accessible text of the NIV Bible, the stories, poems, and teachings of the Bible are arranged in chronological order so students can better understand God’s plan for creation and his people and, even better, it reads like a novel. And like any good story, The Story is filled with intrigue, drama, conflict, romance, and redemption—and this story’s true!
Confirmation is a pivotal time in adolescent faith development. It is a time for youth to explore, develop, and claim a faith of their own. We will take time to dive into scripture, ask questions, explore other faith traditions, and put words to our own beliefs. Confirmation IS NOT having all the answer or have following a prescribed check-list. Confirmation IS a fun time of exploration in a relaxed environment of friends, mentors, and community support.
We are excited to have a Confirmation class this coming Spring 2018!
The class will be led by Pastor Scott and Pastor Annamarie. We look forward to starting this Confirmation Journey on February 10 and Confirmation Sunday will be on Pentecost, June 9. We are also planning a Confirmation Retreat which is scheduled for March 23-24.
Confirmation Class is underway and it’s going great! We are so excited to go on a Confirmation Retreat on March 23-24 at Lost River Retreat Center in Lost River, WV. We will be joined by our Confirmation friends from Burke Presbyterian Church. The retreat will be led by Pastor Annamarie Groenenboom and Burke Presbyterian Associate Pastor Adam Ogg. The focus of the retreat will be the importance of community and using our spiritual gifts in our communities. We can’t wait for this exciting worship, fellowship, and learning experience.
If you know of a 8th-10th grader interested in diving deeper into their faith and going on this Confirmation journey, please let Pastor Annamarie know!
