For Youth

 

IMG_3874Confirmation
This two-year program during the school year prepares 7th and 8th grade students for full membership in the church. Confirmation class teaches the basic beliefs of the faith, theology and the responsibilities which come with a Profession of Faith and church membership. At a special worship service on June 4, we will celebrate this rite of passage into mature faith and full membership for all 8th graders (and above) who complete the course. Confirmation classes meet on the third Saturday of every month, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., with additional outings for serving opportunities and retreats. For additional information contact Rev. Christal Bell, Youth Pastor, at cbell@barringtonumc.com or Pastor Carol Hill at pastor@fumcwd.org.

Sunday School
Students in 6th and 7th grade will leave after the children’s message and join Jennifer Schaffer for an exciting lesson, based on the scripture lesson for that Sunday.
Students in 8-12th grades will join Barb Empen in the lower level youth room for Sunday School, utilizing a debate-style discussion format.

Acolytes
We invite our youth to bring in the light of Christ each Sunday by participating in our Acolyte program. All Acolytes will have a brief training on Sunday, September 11 at 9:15 am with Pastor Carol. Any youth in 5th – 12th grade that would like to participate can attend and will be assigned to Sundays throughout the year.
