Sr. High Formation

Grades 9-12
Sunday Mornings 9:40am -10:15am
 

Currently (August 2015 – May 2016) the Sr. High class is preparing those who feel called for confirmation. 

“Strengthen, O Lord, your servant with your Holy Spirit; empower her for your service; and sustain her all the days of her life. Amen.”
(BCP p. 418)
 

The sacrament of Confirmation gives teenagers the opportunity to make a mature confession of faith in the God made known in Jesus Christ. Prepared through a series of lessons about God, faith, and the church, participants attend a special service and kneel before the bishop, who prays a unique confirmation prayer over them. 

Beginning in the Fall of 2015 and going through the Spring in 2016, the classes are designed both to teach about the faith and to invite students to discover how they themselves relate to God. 
Teens in ninth through twelfth grade are encouraged to sign up for the class.  We welcome all students in this age group whether they intend to be confirmed or not.  This class is only offered every three years.  The curriculum will consist of the book My Faith, My Life by Jenifer Gamber and each student attending will receive a free copy.  Please RSVP to Justin Dixon at gms.dixon@gmail.com or text/call to 918-830-8795 by August 1st so we can purchase the correct amount of books.
 

The Sr. High class will explore new curriculum options, beginning in the summer and fall of 2016.
