7th Grade PlusEvents for our pre-Confirmation group


A Confirmation class will be offered for 7th plus graders starting Fall 2014. The following events are planned this Winter and Spring as a way to forge these kids together as a group and prepare for next year:


Dinner with Kathy and Stacy at Stacy’s House

Food, socializing and conversation

Sunday, March 9, 6:00 pm


Sunday, May 18, 6:00 pm

Parents’ Meeting with Stacy and KathyWe’ll plan to get together in the late Spring to talk about what Confirmation should look like for our kids next year, and how it can best be scheduled.


Bibles for Pre-Confirmands

Rather than giving out Bibles at the end of Confirmation, we’ve decided to give out Bibles before the beginning of Summer. We’ll have a special moment in worship just as we do for the 4th graders each November.
