Faith Formation - EDGE Middle School Ministry for  6th to 8th grade youth

Faith Formation for Middle School Youth will continue to be adapted through Lifeteen’s EDGE prorgram. This will be adapted with our physical distancing rules and online experiences.

  • This will occur twice a month on Wednesdays with scripture study, virtual games, and time for community zia zoom. 
  • We hope to offer in person opportunities as we are allowed to. 

Faith Formation - Confirmation preparation (9th - 12th grade) 

In our new approach to Confirmation preparation, teens will be awakened to a sense of belonging to the Church. Our desire is for this to lead them toward a more intimate union with Christ.

  • Year 1 – teens will go through 9 sessions of the Youth Alpha series via zoom with small groups.
  • During summer, Teens and their sponsor will walk through 6 lessons together
  • Year 2 – teens will complete the second half of LifeTeen's Purpose program. They will continue with two lessons a month on zoom.
  • For the time being, we plan on offering a digital retreat for both years. Other events and activities may be offered as time progresses.
  • Opportunities for both in-person and online will be offered, but will be evaluated month to month.
