First Communion 

Communion Instruction will be held on Saturday, March 4th from 9am to noon in the Fellowship Center for 2nd graders or any child older than 2nd grade who has not received instruction. The instruction will be led by Pastor Mike, Pastor Tamika, and Alyssa. During the instruction, children will bake bread, make their own banner to be hung on the families’ pew and receive a Bible. Each child should be accompanied by an adult (parent, grandparent, godparent, etc.). Please, no siblings as we would like to give our undivided attention to your First Communion recipients.

Children and parents are invited to commune together on Sunday, March 5th during the 9:30 Service.

Affirmation of Baptism Classes

Affirmation of Baptism (formerly known as Confirmation) is a two-year faith-forming journey for anyone in the 6th grade or higher, their parents/ guardians, and mentors and facilitators who accompany them on this journey.

Affirmation of Baptism classes are held on Sundays at 11:00am in the Education Building.

Previously, there were two concurrent classes, Year One (Bible) and Year Two (Catechism). We have shifted to teaching one class a year with Bible and Catechism being offered on a rotating basis. You can begin your two year process with which ever class is being offered the year you begin. The Catechism class is being offered this year. 

Those interested in participating should review the AOB overview, then complete and submit the AOB registration forms to Alyssa Terry
