SIXTH GRADE CONFIRMATION STUDY
Once children enter sixth grade, they participate in youth Sunday school and youth ministries. The sixth grade confirmation class meets in the small dining room in the Family Life Center. Our sixth graders are engaged in confirmation study that focuses on our history and heritage as Methodists, what it means to be a Christian and a Methodist, and living as a disciple in our world. Confirmation study starts in September and finishes in April. Upon completion of their Confirmation study, sixth graders become members of the church on a special Confirmation Sunday.

YOUTH COUNCIL
The purpose of Youth Council is for a majority of youth to gather with adults to help discuss our ministry with youth. They help make decisions and hard choices concerning the direction of the youth ministry. The youth serving on Youth Council are committed to being leaders in the youth ministry and share not only their time with the youth, but also the rest of the church congregation. They meet monthly as scheduled.
