This January, we will begin one of my favorite opportunities for our students.  Our Confirmation Program serves as an opportunity for youth in grades seven and above to explore the Christian faith and to make a commitment to become a disciple of Jesus Christ.  Each youth will learn what it means to be a Christian and a member of the United Methodist Church.  The goal of this program is not for students to simply become members of this church, but for them to learn to love Jesus with their whole hearts and to love the church as it carries out Jesus’ mission in the world.  Nothing gets me more excited than this! 

There will be a mandatory orientation and information meeting concerning the 2018 Confirmation Program on Sunday, January 7, at 5:00 pm in the Upper Room.  Classes will take place Sunday, January 14 through April 22 from 9:30 am-12:15 pm.  The entire confirmation class will attend worship and Sunday school together as part of the confirmation process.  January 14-February 25, the students will attend 9:30 worship and have class at 11:00.  The Confirmation students and their parents will be leading shifts for the Fellowship Breakfast on February 4 as a way to serve our church. March 4 –April 23, they will attend class at 9:30 and worship at 11:00. We will not have class on March 25 and April 1 due to Spring Break and Easter.  Our mandatory confirmation retreat will be the weekend of March 2-4.  We will celebrate Confirmation Sunday on April 29 with our rehearsal dinner on Saturday, April 28. 
Each youth will be assigned a mentor group that they will meet with throughout the Confirmation Program. On January 7, we will discuss the schedule, curriculum, and expectations for Confirmation; fill out the necessary paperwork; and answer questions.  Please bring your child’s date of baptism to this meeting if they have already been baptized. Your attendance at this meeting, all the classes, and the retreat is very important to make your Confirmation experience both meaningful and memorable.  Attendance is mandatory at the January 7 meeting for youth and at least one parent.  Youth are also required to attend all of the Confirmation Retreat and at least 80% of the classes and church services in order to be eligible to be confirmed.  Any exceptions must be cleared ahead of time with Mark.
We encourage you to prayerfully and faithfully consider your participation in the 2018 Confirmation Program.  Traditionally, Confirmation has been offered to 7th graders, but if you do not feel your child is ready, we encourage you to wait a year.  Families are also encouraged to be actively involved in the confirmation process.  There are a number of Sunday school classes available for you to attend during the Sunday morning hours, and families are welcome to sit with the confirmation class during worship each week.  The students who gain the most from confirmation are those whose parents are actively involved in making this a positive experience and a priority for their entire family.
We are eager to embark on this exciting journey of discipleship for Jesus Christ with you.  We hope to see you on Sunday, January 7, at 5:00 pm in the Upper Room.

Are you finding it hard to plan a night out, or…. a night in with your kids out?  If your answer is yes, then we have just the thing for you!  The Methodist youth group, Quake, holds a Parents’ Night Out about once a month during the school year. 

Here are the details:

Location: First United Methodist Church

Time:  6:00pm-10:00 pm  (You are welcome to pick your children up at any time during the night.  They do not have to stay until 10:00).

Cost:  $20 for one child; $5 for each additional child in the family.

Dates:  Oct 20, Dec 1, Jan 19, Feb 9, March 2, April 13, May 11

Where does the money go?:  All money raised is put into a Youth Missions fund to pay for trips or events that our youth participate in.

The children are divided into the following groups:

1) Infant - 3 year olds ~ These kids are in the nursery all night.  We have 1 adult with 1 or 2 youth, depending on how many kids we have signed up for the night. 

2) Preschool ~ These kids are in one of the preschool rooms upstairs from 6-8:00 playing with the kitchen toys, coloring, puzzles, maybe doing a craft, and having snack.  At 8:00, they come down to the gym and pretty much just run around and scream or play group games.   At 8:00, they join the school age group in the cafe for a snack and to watch a movie until parent pick up time at 10:00.  Depending on the size of the group, we will have 1 adult with 2-4 youth.

3) School Age ~ These kids are in the gym and cafe from 6-8:00.  We have games and crafts for them to do in the cafe, and they do their own thing in the gym, which is what I like to call controlled chaos :)  Most of the kids are running around for the whole 2 hours.  At 8:00, they go into the café for a snack and then at 8:30 we start the movie.  We have 1 or 2 adults with 4 or 5 youth, depending on how many families have signed up for the night.

If this sounds like something you would like to take advantage of, just complete the registration form by printing the attachment below and return it into the church office.  Please contact Kendra Ingle at 937-707-8022 or email her at with any questions.

In order to have the appropriate number of volunteers to watch the kids, and because space is limited, you MUST sign up 48 hours BEFORE the night of the event.
