Upcoming Events

High School Advent Bible Study

November 29, December 6, December 13, December 20

4:30 – 5:30 pm

Everything seems different at the end of the year. We see crazy Christmas lights on houses to distract from darkness, Christmas music floods the stores where we shop, apple cider, eggnog and cranberry juice are again on the menu, and wrapping paper and tape are always ready. Things just look, smell, and taste differently during the Advent and Christmas season, and these differences are a sign to us that God is about to do something amazing and different. During this four-session study, we will join Rev. Jerry and explore the sights and sounds of the season and ask ourselves:

What signs do we see during the Advent and Christmas season that point us to God?

Classes are held on Sunday evenings from February through November and include a companion parent class. Students meet in small groups with adult leaders and high school mentors who have completed confirmation, called ex-cons. The program includes a spring retreat, summer opportunities for service projects, congregational care visits, and mission trips, with a special Confirmation Sunday celebration in November.
