Sunday School & Confirmation

On Sundays when there are education offerings for all ages, high schoolers gather in the youth room after our 9:30 service to have fun, build relationships, and enhance each others' spiritual journeys. This is a safe space for them to honestly engage each other, bearing their joys, questions, and doubts about God and religion. Some session are more instructional while others are intended to be fun. These serve as our confirmation program, and much of the content is derived from the "Confirm not Conform" program. Below are our high school formation dates for 2017-18:

September 24, The Gospel According to New Orleans

October 15, Is Something Wrong with the Prosperity Gospel?
