Dear Parents of 8th Graders,
I would like to invite your 8th graders to be a part of our 2016 Confirmation class at Palisades Presbyterian Church. Confirmation is a time to ask questions about faith, to learn what the Bible has to say about faith and our response to God’s call. I will be teaching a six week class beginning on Sunday, April 24th for 8th graders on the basics of the Christian faith and what it means to be Presbyterian. The conferment will officially join the church on Sunday, June 5th at the evening Sunset Crossing service. Those who have not yet been baptized will be baptized on June 5th.
We will also have a joint meeting for kids and parents on a date to be announced to discuss: the theology of our high school youth group, dates for the upcoming mission trips (Belize, Scotland and Dominican), leadership training, weekly times for teens to work with younger children, in-town service opportunities and discipleship.
This year we are including a four year timeline of what students need to be involved in academically, with extracurricular activities, testing and writing essays. Our hope is to create a four year high school program that teaches our teenagers to live a balanced life of faith, leadership, service and genuine relationships.
All teens, 8th grader and older, are welcome to be a part of the class. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to seeing your 8th graders on April 24th.
