YOUTH SUNDAY SCHOOL
Sixth and Seventh Graders* – This class continues its annual rotation between Old and New
Testament. This year we are in the Old Testament, and next year will focus on the New Testament continuing to build a strong foundation of biblical knowledge to prepare for Confirmation class in their eighth-grade year. (Curriculum: "We Believe: With All Boldness and Freedom, a Survey of the Old Testament")
Confirmation* – This class is designed to prepare our eighth graders for membership in the Presbyterian Church. It will explore the history of the Christian church in the United States, worship in the Presbyterian Church (USA) and general knowledge of reformed theology.This year we are focusing more of our attention on the PC(USA) confirmation. (Curriculum: "We Believe: Professing Our Faith, a Confirmation Curriculum")
Ninth, Tenth, Eleventh, Twelfth Graders* – In this class, high schoolers delve deeper into the world in which they live, exploring through discussion, Bible study and media how their faith and the faith of those around them intersects with daily living. Students will use the Bible in conjunction with other resources to link the complex teenage world to biblical themes. (Curriculum: "Intersections" – Smith & Helwys)
