It’s going to be exciting to welcome your sixth graders to our first session of the Confirmation Class at 9:30 am this Sunday (September 7). We will focus on getting-to-know-you games and activities. My primary goal in September is to create an atmosphere of fun interaction, so that we can build a community that your youth will look forward to belonging!
We meet on the second floor of the Justin Youth Building. Please use the “older, original entrance” on Fifth Street – come up the stairs – and our room will be very easy to find. We will finish our time together at 10:40 am. Parents can either come pick up your youth at the room or tell your youth to meet you at a pre-arranged spot.
Copies of the Confirmation Registration Form will be available (if you weren’t able to print the copy that was emailed in August). Thanks to those of you who have already filled it out and returned to me.
LOOKING AHEAD…. HERE ARE A HANDFUL OF PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENTS
- Next Sunday, September 14 will be our combined session with parents and youth. We will meet in the second floor gymnasium at 9:30 am for this.
- Also next Sunday is the “optional-yet-highly-fun” Family Swimming Party & Cookout at our church’s Lyle Lodge facility on Eagle Mountain Lake. It will be from 2:00 – 6:00 pm. All you will have to do is drive there and bring swimming suits and towels….food and drinks will be provided. Siblings are more than welcome to attend! Simply RSVP by sending me an email at your convenience. I will send out the address and directions next week.
- On September 21, our Confirmation Class will be attending the first Sunday morning gathering for our new Director of Youth Ministries, Andrew Mochrie! We will meet as a class in our second floor room, and then go downstairs as a group.
- And finally…. Our Service of Confirmation will be on Sunday, May 17 at 7:00 pm in the Sanctuary, with a Banquet preceding at 5:00 pm in Wesley Hall. Thanks for putting this on your family calendar in advance.
Have a great weekend and see you Sunday!
