August is almost here and we are hard at work preparing for the fall. High School Ministry will start in high gear Sunday September 15th. Our High School Ministry Board will be supporting and helping us create some really incredible Sunday morning offerings all throughout this year. These opportunities will include a monthly service event, intentional time for connection at 10:15 each Sunday, and opportunities to volunteer with Middle School, Children’s, and Early Childhood programs. We will also be reinstating our weekly lunch following worship on Sundays. Check Instagram and our website for more updates throughout the month of August.
Camp Sunday is August 4th. We would love for you to come and celebrate with us. We will be reaching out to many of you to participate in this worship experience. Following camp Sunday students can join us up in the High School Loft for Pizza. We will spend a few hours creating artwork to fill the halls leading to the loft.
Confirmation Sunday is the 22nd. If you were a part of confirmation last year you are invited to be confirmed Sunday the 22nd. We will meet Sunday morning the 15th at 10:15 to walk through that service and give you all the details you might need.
If you are an incoming freshman this year your confirmation program will begin with a parent and student milestone on Sunday Morning Sept 29th at 10:15 in the loft. More information will be coming to each of your personal emails directly.
The High School Search Committee is doing great work. They have visited other great programs throughout the area, they have interviewed students, High School small group leaders, the Highschool Board, Church staff, the Family Ministry Team, and parents to collect data and important information to inform the search process. We hope to write and post the job description around August 15th.
We will have an Interim High School Director for the first three months regardless of when we hire our new High School Ministry Director. This will create space for the new director to come in and get adjusted. It will also help our students adjust and connect with a new leader. Our goal is to have the interim person in place by mid August. As we identify this person we will share that information with your families.
We are so excited about this fall and cannot wait to see all that God is going to do within our High School Ministry.
Peace and Hope,
Rev. Rustin Comer, Minister of Faith Formation
