Youth and Worship

Each spring the middle school and high school youth plan and lead the entire congregation in worship. Middle School youth also participate in a puppet ministry during worship through the year. During Advent, youth share the gospel message using a liturgical movement and music program called “Joy Stix.”
 
 

Confirmation Class

In the Presbyterian tradition, youth participate in an intensive time of study and reflection as they prepare to make their profession of faith and become full and active members of the church. Our confirmation class takes place every 2-3 years.
