We’re so excited to share about our church’s youth community and invite your 6th grader to our PREVIEW DAY on Sunday, May 3 @9am! Junior High will be here before you know it and we would LOVE to help you get excited about about REFUGE, our Sunday morning junior high ministry and our Confirmation Program.
Preview Day is an opportunity for 6th graders to PREVIEW our junior high ministry and discover a loving & supportive faith community they can plug into during some often difficult years. Our youth room has carpet ball, a foosball table and space for kids to hang out and catch up with each other. Our youth band leads us in worship and one of our youth pastors shares lessons from the Bible. Then we enjoy time in small groups led by parent volunteers where we have conversations about Jesus. Parents are totally invited and there is a Q & A time at the end. There is no cost to attend, but we do ask for an email RSVP. We want our community to know about our junior high ministry and so we welcome you to invite friends & other parents to our Preview Day as well.
SUMMER ACTIVITIES: Your 6th grader is also welcome to our junior high Summer activities! We have Pool Parties, Bible Studies and other events we call Gym Jams, where we play games in the Gathering Place, our church gym. We also have a 7th Grade Kickoff Retreat near Payson, August 14-15 we call CAMP BOND as it’s an opportunity for the kids to bond and really get to know each other.
CONFIRMATION PROGRAM: We also wanted to ask if you were familiar with our church’s Confirmation Program? It’s a two year program, meeting once a week for about 10 weeks each semester on either Tuesday or Wednesday nights, where the kids grow in their understanding of the Christian faith, and get an opportunity to make the faith their own. Everyone’s favorite experience is Confirmation Camp in Sedona. If your family decides that Confirmation is for them, they will have so much fun, create lifelong memories, friendships, maturity and spiritual growth. Our ORIENTATION MEETING for Confirmation is Sunday, August 9 @11:30am. SAVE THE DATE!
TEXTS and EMAILS: We even have a TEXT service if you’re interested. We send out alerts about youth events and also youth EMAILS if you would like to receive those too. Let us know if you would like us to add you and other family members.
Thank you so much for reading/browsing this information about our youth ministry!
