ALL YOUNG PEOPLE:  THE ABSOLUTE BASICS OF THE CHRISTIAN FAITH STARTS MARCH 1
Each year we have Confirmation Classes for our middle school students and this year we are inviting the all young people in grades 5th-8th, to join us!  “The Absolute Basics of the Christian Faith” begins on March 1 and meet on 10 Wednesdays from 4-5:30 PM plus one Saturday. There is no course fee but we ask for $5 for the book AND that your student do something either at home or here at church to earn it. We will have a special Sunday for those who complete the course on May 21 at 10:00 AM.
A couple of details:
  • We will pick up the students at Edgewood Middle School in the church van right after school or you can bring them to church by 3:45.
  • Along with the lesson we will have crafts, snacks, and build friendships! Parents and our volunteers who are willing to learn are welcome to participate!
  • Watch the first lesson at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=08MxU-ifAkA or see below the video.
  • We will not meet on March 15 due to spring break.
  • This is for any Christian and not just Methodists.
  • Contact Pastor Alan Van Hooser at 903-896-4935 or email at revavanhooser@aol.com for questions or comments.

 

We need volunteers to make this happen! We will need help with van drivers,  snacks each week, a craft each week, a faith friend for each student, and folks to share the story of their faith.  We also need a place for a Saturday retreat where we will wrap up our group and make our decisions for Christ-Call Pastor Alan if you would like to host.  Judi Yarbrough and the Outreach team will be organizing the volunteers.  Email Judi at judiyarbrough@yahoo.com to sign up.  ALL VOLUNTEERS MUST TAKE THE SAFE SANCTUARY TRAINING AND HAVE A BACKGROUND CHECK.
