Confirmation and Youth Group
Sunday School 9:45-10:30am in the Purple room
Wednesdays from 6:30-8pm (please email Josiah at Josiahclcrsm@gmail.com for the calendar)
Our Confirmation ministry provides Jr. High 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 an annual trash pick up (Dec. 1 from 11am-1pm) when we learn about being good stewards of God's creation.
Lock ins: An overnight at church when our youth get to know each other through games, fellowship, devotions, and service projects.
Christmas Party (Dec. 7 from 6-8pm) A time to celebrate the birth of Jesus in a way only a youth group can!
Mentoring: Every year Jr. High 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.
MSYG (Middle School Youth Gathering) Nov. 22-24: This weekend event involves youth from churches throughout southern California. Youth attend large gatherings, and workshops focusing on faith. We spend part of the day on Saturday at an amusement park. It's a great annual event which helps youth develop closer bonds.
Winter Camp (March 6-8): Each winter Jr. High 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 (July 12-17): 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 (July 25-31): 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.
