In this stage of faith formation, we focus on students building meaningful relationships with God, peers, adult leaders and members of our communities. We build these relationships through energetic events, small group discussions, service-learning opportunities, and experiential worship.
(10th – 12th grades)
High school is a time of joyful, messy, brave identity formation. Advent high school youth practice personal, interpersonal, and systemic boundary crossing in a safe and supportive community. We explore how to lament, celebrate, dialogue, show up, listen, and build meaningful relationships as spiritual practice. We recognize God in our vulnerable neighbors, in the community garden, in worship, and inside our hearts. We grapple with big questions and unfold into the sacred interaction of God’s story, our story, and the story of our broken and beautiful world.
(6th – 9th grades)
The rite of Affirmation of Baptism (Confirmation) is an important time in the life of a young person, as they claim for themselves the promises made at their baptisms. Advent’s Confirmation ministry begins in sixth grade, and this year, 8th and 9th grade students can choose to Affirm their Baptism in May 2023.
Our Confirmation program centers on getting to know God and each other better by studying scripture together. We take Bible stories in the Hebrew Scripture, using them as a window into the nature of God’s people, and then look at the New Testament to learn about Jesus and His followers.
By showing respect for yourself and your neighbor, you give God glory. We also take a closer look at how we can honor our minds, bodies, hearts, and classmates at a time when our identities are making some monumental shifts.
Confirmation will start off with a parent/student meeting on September 14, 2022 – and Confirmation will continute through May 3, 2023
Confirmation is In-Person only and will meet 6:30 – 7:45 pm
(we begin each Wednesday evening class in worship)
