Sunday Mornings
Room 104 • August-May

Spring 2023 we hosted Alpha YTH. Alpha helps create a space for honest conversation around some of life’s biggest questions. It is designed to provide guests an opportunity to connect with one another while providing the opportunity to share thoughts, ideas, and opinions in a safe and caring environment.
Alpha helps bring people together
while providing the chance
to encounter Jesus.
There is still more space for your student to join us in Benton Harbor, Michigan.
We will be leaving on June 10th and making a stop in Wheaton, Illlinois and the Warren Dunes before we join YouthWorks.
We will get back on June 16th.

We need several hands and hearts to get ready and pull VBS together. We would love to have our 7th - 12th grade kids help! They are amazing mentors for our younger brothers and sisters. Briefly here are the open positions:
- Co-Coordinators needed for music, games, t-shirts, & crafts.
- Team members needed for registration, music, games, crafts, storytelling, snack, t-shirts, photographer, decorating, set up & clean up. All-hands meeting in May TBD.

Confirmation (7th and 8th grade)


Confirmation class meets on Sunday mornings, September – May, from 9:45-10:45am. In these groups, we engage in large-group and small-group conversations about the topic of the day. We learn from Scripture, the Catechism, and one another. Contact Pastor Zac for questions.


October,  January, March

We have a fall retreat in October, winter retreat in January, and Tomah Shinga Camp has a middle school retreat in March. These 3 day/2 night retreats give our students time to connect with each other, God, and the community. 


June 18-23

Every summer, our Confirmation students spend a week together at Tomah Shinga Camp. We spend the week doing special confirmation lessons in the mornings, and regular camp activities the rest of the day. Our youth enjoy being together in the outdoors, and always have a blast at camp swimming, hiking, boating, crafting, and so much more. Register here!
