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.
Service Opportunities for Middle School Youth
Youth participating in Confirmation are required to complete hours of volunteer service at the church.
Kid's Night Out
Scheduled annually from September through April.
Four to eight youth volunteers (middle school or high school) are needed at each Kid's Night Out to help with crafts and games.
Acolyte or Crucifer
All 6th-grade confirmation students will serve as acolytes and crucifers during the school year. The acolyte lights the altar candles at the start of the worship service and the crucifer carries the processional cross into the Sanctuary at the start of the worship service. Interested 7th and 8th-grade students may also serve as acolytes and crucifers. A schedule of serving dates for worship services is made out each semester.
