College Care Packages

The College Ministry Team is inviting all ministry teams, Sunday School classes, and groups to consider participating in college care packages this fall. College Ministry Team will be sending out care packages to college students during the last week of November, and we’d like to invite groups to consider providing one of the items for those packages. Groups should visit the sign up genius below to sign up for an item and follow the instructions on it carefully. Items are due back to the church office no later than Sunday, November 18. The packages will be assembled at an event at noon on Sunday, November 25 in Fellowship Hall.

If you are the parent or grandparent of a current college student in our church, please provide their mailing address to Lindsay White no later than Sunday, November 18.

Sunday School


On Sunday mornings, we offer Sunday School for all ages during the Sunday School Hour of 10:00-10:45am. In Middle School, our classes are focused on bridging the gap between biblical knowledge and practical faith application. In High School, our class is focused on faith development and practical application.

We offer the following Sunday School classes regularly:

  • 6th-7th grade: Room M107
  • 8th grade Confirmation: Unity Hall
  • High School: Room M108 (Youth Room)

In the Presbyterian Church USA, when we practice baptism, we believe that we are proclaiming the completed work of God in giving grace and mercy to the individual being baptized. We welcome the individual into the fold of God often before he/she can even respond. In baptism, families and the congregation promise to raise the child in the way of God. In Confirmation, we confirm the promises made on our behalf at our baptisms by professing our faith in Jesus Christ and becoming full members of the congregation.

At Unity, we invite all eighth graders to be a part of the Confirmation Journey. In this journey, youth will be expected to participate in classes during Sunday School, attend worship regularly, attend a retreat, attend Sponsor Group meetings, and write a Statement of Faith to be shared with the Session.

Confirmation Class during Sunday School (10-10:45am) is held in Unity Hall.

If you would like to be a part of the Confirmation Class, please contact Lindsay White as soon as possible ( and fill out the Commitment Form found below.


The 2018-19 Confirmation Schedule is here.

Youth Group Information


5:00-6:00 pm on Sunday evenings

Middle School Youth Group is place where youth in grades 6-8 can gather in fellowship and fun, explore their faith, and serve their community. On a regular youth group evening, we will have 25 minutes of games, a 10 minute devotion, 20 minutes of small group discussion and activities, and a 5 minute challenge.

Middle School youth can be dropped off at the Youth Wing Parking Lot (by the cemetery) and picked up in the Fellowship Hall Parking Lot.


6:45-7:45 pm, Sunday evenings

High School Youth Group is a place where youth in grades 9-12 can gather in fellowship and fun, explore their faith, and serve their community. On a regular youth group evening, we will have 20 minutes of games, 10 minutes of devotion, 25 minutes of small group discussion or sharing, and a 5 minute challenge.

SNL Meals are Family Meals: We invite all children, youth, and adults to come as a family to SNL Meals from 6:00-6:45 pm in the Fellowship Hall. This is a chance to be together as a family and as our church family.

Payment and Reservations: We will continue to have reservations online here, and we encourage you to reserve your spots by Wednesday at noon. Unlike previously, you’ll register with the number in attendance rather than each individual. Instead of a price per meal, we will accept donations to offset the cost of the meals. The suggested donation per person is $4, but we will not be checking you off and making sure that you pay each week. That way, you can make one donation at the beginning, or you can make a donation each week, or you can donate online by designating your donation to SNL Meals.
