XPerience is not your traditional confirmation ministry. In XPerience, students experience Jesus Christ in their lives in fresh and memorable ways. Students make friendships and having fun, while learning to serve, and getting a foundation of Bible teaching that will support them in the middle school years. Parent CUEs give moms and dads the resources to strengthen their relationships with their middle school kids, and grow in faith together.
