Remember back to those warm wonderful years of acceptance and love in Middle School? Right. No one does. These can be difficult years for many kids – about as much fun as the zombie apocalypse. They need a safe place. Our Middle School class and youth group are friendship groups where middle schoolers experience fun, love and acceptance. And they learn, in the challenging new world of Middle School, that God’s love applies to them.
Confirmation calls youth to make a personal and public response to the love of God shown forth in their baptismal covenant. In Confirmation, confirmands are asked to commit themselves to Jesus Christ and to affirm their intention to live out their faith as part of a faith community.
At Westminster, confirmation is a one year commitment from September to spring, meeting weekly on Sunday at 10:45 am. The class is designed for ninth grade students. The curriculum is “Professing Our Faith,” a PC(USA) curriculum.
High School is a time of growth, challenge and change. We offer multiple options. Sunday morning Seminar. Evening Senior High Youth Group. Short term mission trips. And an opportunity to go on a youth Pilgrimage to our sister church near Dresden, Germany. We are a place of acceptance that is different from other places. Located in the heart of Westminster, we are black, white, gay, straight, religious and ridiculously fun. We offer a progressive education with an emphasis on the great themes found within religion, such as love, justice, peace and forgiveness, where the truth within a story is more important than the truth of a story.
Sunday School starts at 9 am and Youth Group meets on Sunday evenings begining at 7 pm.
