Our Mission is to be a loving community where students come to know and walk with Christ.
It is our privilege to share God’s love, and together with parents, to build a spiritual foundation that lasts a lifetime.
Our Vision is to be one in Christ through:
Confirmation (6th – 8th grade)
We meet from 6:30-8 pm twice a month on Tuesdays. Spring schedule TBA
Confirmation: This ministry provides youth (6th-8th graders) a place to come together to learn and grow in their faith through learning, service, fellowship and relationship building. Youth begin to form stronger and deeper connections and build relationships with one another and mentors.
Service: Throughout the year there will be opportunities to serve our community in various ways, including helping at our local food pantry, mission trips to Baja, trash pick-ups and more focusing on buidling community in Christ.
Confirmation Mini Retreat: We will spend a Saturday afternoon together getting know each other through fellowship, games, devotion, and prayer.
Mentoring: Every year youth have the opportunity to meet with adult mentors at church. This is a wonderful experience for youth and adults to build connections, share about life, and growth together in faith.
Winter Camp: Each winter youth get their own weekend to connect with friends from other church youth groups, grow in faith, and experience God at our church camp.
Confirmation Camp: Each summer youth love going to Confirmation camp to grow in their faith and build lifelong friendships. Camp helps youth experience God in new and significant ways that often have a life-time impact.
Backpacking: Every summer we embark on an adventure into the Emigrant Wilderness in the Stanislaus National Forest! This year we will spend 6 days hiking, swimming, camping, growing closer to God and learning more about each other. Groups are grade and/or age specific and are led by an experienced adult “guide” and responsible adult “counselors”. This week is a great way to unplug from the distractions we encounter on a daily basis. It is also a great opportunity for youth to build strong intergenerational relationships.
