Confirmation 2019
Starts Sunday, February 3rd
 
For all youth 6th grade and up. This year's Confirmation classes will begin Sunday, February 3, 2019. The classes will meet every Sunday (during the Sunday School hour from 9:30am to 10:30am).
 
Confirmation is a special tradition in the United Methodist Church. Like baptism, it is a milestone event in the lives of our youth. It is a time to begin a journey of faith that nurtures and challenges preteens to think about the nature of God, the life of Christ, His calling, and our response. It is also a time to begin learning the beliefs, theology, and traditions specific to the United Methodist Church.

Resurrection is only a couple weeks away! This is our biggest trip of the year. Resurrection is an awesome annual event of worship and spiritual growth for youth and youth mentors. Each year over 12,000 come together in Pigeon Forge, TN, to celebrate the God of the Resurrection. Through inspirational words and music led by nationally-known speakers and musicians, young people encounter the Lord in new and deeper ways. 
 
Sign-ups and payments are due THIS Sunday at the parent meeting! (@ Noon in the Youth Lounge). It is important for parents and volunteers to be at this meeting. We will also have a short meeting for all the volunteers who are coming on the trip right after the parent meeting. 
 
 
This year we are finally able to offer the ability to pay online! We are using a website/app called Eventbrite to make signing up and paying for events easier. This is our first time using it so we apologize for any potential issues that arise but we hope this will make things easier for all of you! Of course, you can still sign up and pay in person if you prefer that! 
 
Register & Pay Online (No Extra Fees!)
 
We have many youth who are only able to participate in Resurrection because of scholarships. If you are willing to donate to help a youth attend Resurrection please let us know! Any size donation is welcome!

PrimeTime Class for Parents!
Starting Wednesday, January 9th

Feel like your kids are drowning in a sea of new questions, apps, and devices? Want to talk about digital media more with your kids, but aren't sure how?
 
Parents... Help is here.

The goal is to have great relationships with our kids.
In today's world, digital media will be involved somehow.
Rather than a divider, it can be a common ground where families connect.
How to Stalk Your Kids Online 101 is sometimes what we want.
But what is a constructive and healthy approach to digital safety?
How can I raise kids who will participate in social media thoughtfully and respectfully?
How can my kids become Christ-like digital citizens?

Join us each week as we discuss and share our fears and struggles as navigate the world of social media with our children.
  • Why should we step into the digital world?
  • Supervision or Surveillance?
  • Why do my kids constantly check their phones?
  • How can my kids become good digital citizens?
  • How can we be present when we're in the same room?
  • When can i take off the media training wheels?
"As parents, we find ourselves living on the "digital frontier." Like pioneers who crossed the country to settle the Wild West, every step we take into this new technological landscape moves us further and further into uncharted territory. Figuring out how best to navigate the journey for our kids and for ourselves is not an option for parents; it's a necessity. This resource will serve you as a wise and valuable tool in your digital parenting toolbox."

Youth Christmas Party!
December 16, 2018
This year our Youth Council has decided to have a progressive dinner pajama party! Come comfy in your best pajamas or onesie (it can be Christmas themed but doesn't have to be). We will also have a Secret Santa gift exchange, which means we need to know ahead of time if you plan to participate in the gift exchange.
 
If you want to do Secret Santa you will need to be at youth on December 5th. That is when we will put names in a hat and draw our Secret Santa. 
 
We will leave the church at 4pm to head to our first house so please be on time!! We will be back by 8pm.
