Nurturing the Faith of Tomorrow
Middle School aged youth have class during worship in the classroom at the top of the stairs on the third floor. Follow the stairs outside Merriam Hall to the 3rd floor. The middle school curriculum is a brand new curriculum that teaches about “words of faith.” Words such as: “Prophet, Epiphany, Job, Suffering, Yahweh.” It’s a three year curriculum and each lesson is another word to help build understanding of our faith tradition, while assisting the youth to make their own decision about their faith.
High School aged youth have class during worship, participate as adults in worship, and volunteer in the children’s worship centers on a rotating basis. Meeting days and classes vary throughout the year. Please contact our high school teacher, Jon Propper, Director of Adult Education, for more information.
Youth group is for both middle school and high school aged youth. These gatherings consist primarily of fun, active adventures that serve to bond the group together and teach broader lessons of our faith. This is a great time to bring friends along to introduce them to our youth group and get them involved with Park Church!
Confirmation is the rite of the church where we invite teenagers to go through a program of learning, practice, and mentorship to decide for themselves whether they would like to confirm the faith of their baptism. Upon confirming their faith, youth become adult members of the church. Confirmation instruction is offered every other year. Our next confirmation year will be 2017-2018.
