Youth Group Information

MIDDLE SCHOOL YOUTH GROUP

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. All youth participating in regular youth group or any other event must fill out the 2016-2017 Youth Ministries Registration Form.

HIGH SCHOOL YOUTH GROUP

6:45-8:00 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 30 minutes of games, 10 minutes of devotion, 30 minutes of small group discussion or sharing, and a 5 minute challenge.

High School Youth should park in the Fellowship Hall Parking Lot or should be dropped off by the Youth Wing Parking Lot (by the cemetery). All youth participating in regular youth group or any youth event must fill out the 2016-2017 Youth Ministries Registration Form.

Dinner:

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 on February 25, or you can make a donation each week, or you can donate online by designating your donation to SNL Meals.

Confirmation

INFORMATION

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 of 2017-2018, please contact Lindsay White as soon as possible (lwhite@unityfortmill.org) and fill out the Commitment Form found below.

SCHEDULE

The 2017-18 Confirmation Schedule is here.
