Confirmation is not only a United Methodist tradition, but is a great class of spiritual investigation, questioning, learning, growing and formation. The 2021 confirmation class started the week of January 24th and is looking quite different than what confirmation class was even just a few years ago. With COVID restrictions in place, confirmation classes are being offered both in person as well as online to meet the comfort and safety needs of everyone. While there are many other changes in the curriculum and requirements, one thing has stayed the same our students are guided through a course to discover what the Christian life is all about. Confirmation Sunday will be on April 17th.
EPIC is also starting back up again! Starting January 31st, EPIC will meet weekly in an alternating in-person and online format. The first week we will meet in person, the following week we will have small group on zoom, then rotate back to an in-person meeting the following week. Our hope is that this gives all of our students the opportunity to attend in whichever setting meets their comfort level. EPIC will meet each Sunday night from 7:00-8:00pm either in the youth room at church or on zoom. Contact Pastor Beth for more information.

EPIC Student Ministry
This Fall, EPIC is meeting every other week instead of each
Sunday to restrict our COVID exposures. EPIC’s kick-off took
place on Sunday, September 20 with a bonfire and Covid safe
s’mores! While we forgot to get pictures of the rest of the evening,
we did get a picture of our EPIC leaders preparing the s’mores
bags! Following the kickoff, EPIC will meet bi-weekly at the
Hershberger Residence for small groups starting on October 4.
Face masks are required.
For any questions please contact Beth Botsford- Graham, our Associate Pastor and Director of Children and Youth Ministries at: email@example.com or call the church office at (319) 626-2762.
