Confirmation Class of 2019
This year’s confirmation class used the new PC(USA) curriculum, Big God Big Questions. We opened the year with a team-building retreat at the UGA high ropes course, met for twelve sessions during Sunday School, participated in Youth Sunday, attended the Presbytery meeting where Dr.Baer was examined, prepared the ashes for Ash Wednesday, cooked lunch for the Mardi Gras Mission Gala as our service project, and wrote personal statements of faith that we presented to Session.Throughout the year, we were supported by a wonderful team of mentors who shared their own faith journeys and encouraged confirmands to ask questions and own their faith. On March 24, we celebrated these ten youth on Confirmation Sunday. Read their faith statements here.

Prayer Stations, April 15-20
You are invited to visit the Tinsley Stern Building during Holy Week to experience Lenten prayer stations prepared by our youth. This year our theme is the five senses. God speaks to us through what we touch, smell, see, hear, and taste. We know this intuitively, but to think about it consciously is a powerful form of prayer. May your time this week help to draw you closer to the love of God through Jesus.
