Sunday Night XPerience

The primary component of our middle school ministry is the Sunday Night XPerience Events. Each session will focus on an issue or experience that is common to the life of middle school students, and connect them to God’s story of salvation, and the Bible’s answers for life. These events include teaching, worship & prayer, interactive learning games, and experiential activities to bring home the lesson.  Pastor Mike and several other adults make up our lesson teaching group this year.  Students will be organized into 5 small groups, divided by grade and gender, with 2 adult leaders per group.

 

Please complete our Online Confirmation Registration Form  and indicate if your child will attend Confirmation class in-person or online.

There is a fee of $10.00 for each student to help defray the cost of the confirmation materials.  Please make checks payable to “Shepherd of the Hills” and drop off at the orientation.

Sessions are Sunday’s from 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm.

9 Required Worship Service Worksheets are to be completed, one per month during the school year.

 

6th graders will be required to attend an Ash Wednesday service and complete a Worship Worksheet. 7th and 8th graders will be required to attend either the Maundy Thursday or Good Friday service and complete a Worship Worksheet.
