Sunday school in The Loft begins with a time of fellowship (upstairs Spitzer Ed.) at 9:45 a.m. Middle and high school students will gather together with a team of adult leaders in an effort to help students know Christ, own their faith, and make their faith be known.
Confirmation Class is offered to students in eighth grade and above who, along with God and their parents, make the decision to join the church. Confirmands are paired with adult sponsors from the congregation, who serve as mentors throughout the school year. The year-long program begins with activities in the fall, classes in the winter, and Confirmands are confirmed as members of the church each spring on Palm Sunday.
