Confirmation – Seeds of Faith

Picture the Bible Curriculum for Faith Adventures:

This is our third year for the “Picture the Bible” curriculum that uses a fine art image to prompt a discussion that goes beyond the Bible story to build connections, raise questions, and prompt discussion. Project days and other activities are also built into the calendar. Calendars will be handed out the first night of class, September 25. Both Faith Adventures and Confirmation will use these materials up to Advent. (Curriculum materials for January-May are still being discussed.)


We ask parents to

  • regularly check e-mail for up dates
  • attend the Wednesday family service with your child when possible
  • consider teaching this great group of kids either regularly or on occasion

NOTE:  Registration forms will be e-mailed to last year’s families and available at the church office.  Please complete them promptly, so we can plan for our class sizes. Calendars for the year will be given out on Kick Off Sunday, September 22 after worship.
