Programs and Activities

PLEASE NOTE: There will be no Sunday Not School, Confirmation or Youth Night on Sunday, October 27 due to the Youth


Sunday Not School is a continuous class that meets every Sunday morning from 9:30-10:30 a.m. throughout the year.


Youth Night meets on Sundays from 6-8 p.m. in the Student Center. 


Confirmation is both foundational & formational for a student’s faith journey. It provides deep knowledge of the Christian faith that opens up a new way of understanding. In addition, it gives the student an opportunity to own faith unlike ever before. Confirmation classes run from mid-September through the beginning of March. Classes are offered on Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:30 a.m. and are open to students 8th grade and up. Register.
