Confirmation Class is off to a great start, using the new Presbyterian curriculum, “Big God Big Questions.” We are grateful to Natalie Bishop for sharing the Baptism Godly Play Story at our kick-off meeting, reminding the youth that confirmation is a reaffirmation of the vows their parents and church family took at their baptism. We held our Opening Retreat on Saturday, September 22, focusing on building community. Confirmands truly learned to work together and put their trust (and life) in God’s hands as they tackled the high ropes at the UGA Challenge Course! Please keep these youth in your prayers this year as they explore and strengthen their faith in preparation for a public profession of faith on Confirmation Sunday, March 24.
College Care Packages
Each year, youth put together Halloween-themed care packages for our college freshmen. This year we’d like to expand the packages to include the freshmen who are active at the Presbyterian Student Center at UGA. If you’d like to contribute some goodies, there will be collection boxes outside The PIT and in the Atrium through October 15. Ideas include Halloween decorations, cozy socks, candy, and other reminders of home.
