Small Groups to Begin on September 15

Check out Confirmation Small Group, Sunday, Sept. 15 at 2 pm. 

We’ll start our time together in the Chapel so plan on meeting there the first week. The group members will plan and structure their time and intention together at the first meeting, so come ready to suggest ideas that work for your busy lives. Group life should be lived in covenant accountability, and this group will celebrate the needs of all who decide to invest their time in its purpose. That can be hard with school and work, so please contact me (Pastor Kara: or FB message me) if this initial time does not work. That will allow me to include your needs as the group begins to plan.

I can not stress how much this group is BOTH FOR AND NOT JUST FOR youth-aged/confirmation-type kids. This is a group built to support the process of confirmation. It will best grow with voices both experienced and not. So if you are unsure if you belong in this type of group, please do not hesitate to reach out! I (Pastor Kara) am happy to answer any questions that come up! Until then, please pray for everyone seeking a deeper level of faith and experience, that they will find their way to this group or another one like it!
