The Youth Forum
Faith formation is a lifelong process, as we individually and corporately seek to come nearer to God in prayer, study, service, and fellowship. At Christ Church, we strive to walk with young people on their journeys from childhood to adulthood, recognizing their gifts for ministry, their questions about spirituality, and their desire to make a difference in the world. On Sundays from 10:15 – 11:00 a.m., middle and high school youth meet in the Youth House for a discussion of the day’s scripture and how it applies today, led by Director of Youth Ministry Brooks Slater. We will meet in the courtyard just outside the main church sanctuary around 10:00 and walk to the youth house together.
Middle School Youth Group (Low Tide) meets on Sunday evenings. High School Youth Group (High Tide) meets on Wednesday evenings. Learn more and register here.
Confirmation kicks off in January with a retreat and classes continue until May, when we celebrate the Rite of Confirmation.
According to the Book of Common prayer, Confirmation is a rite in which the candidate, “expresses a mature commitment to Christ, and receives strength from the Holy Spirit through prayer and the laying on of hands by a bishop.”
We believe it’s important that a candidate – or confirmand – have a complete understanding of what it means to commit their lives to following Christ and his Church. Because of the weight and importance of this decision, the retreat and classes are mandatory for confirmands.
