Sundays, 9:30-10:30 am
Each Sunday morning we gather together to dig a little deeper into Scripture using a variety of studies, curriculum, and styles. We offer a Junior High class for grades 6-8 and a Senior High class for grades 9-12. Together we will help students discover meaning and identity in the biblical narrative and in their lives.
January to April Each Year, Sundays, 9:30-10:30 am
Confirmation Class for eighth graders is a time for our young people to explore their faith and ultimately decide if they want to make a commitment to Jesus Christ and take this opportunity to become members of the church. Each spring, Shallowford excitedly awaits confirmands who are willing to put their faith, trust, and love in Jesus Christ! Listed below are a few of the lessons covered during this four-month period each Spring.
The class focuses on the different sections of the Bible for a better understanding of where to find different topics and styles of writing. Through Confirmation Sunday, confirmands will learn a Books of the Bible song to improve their ability to locate the various chapters.
The class explores the various levels of the Presbyterian church structure including Presbytery, Session and Elder responsibilities. The group will have the opportunity to explore the church, peeking into the many hidden nooks and crannies!
Part of building our faith involves the discipline of knowing how to engage with God. During our Spiritual Practices lesson, confirmands explore the practice of Lectio Divina.
Series on Sacraments
During the class, confirmands learn the different symbols of the church. They reflect on the meaning behind the baptismal font and the Lord’s Supper. Confirmands explore scriptures and think about the different ways we receive communion.
Visiting Other Churches
One of the important parts of Confirmation is recognizing how other Christians worship so that our students fully understand how Shallowford Presbyterian worships. During this class, confirmands and their sponsors travel off campus to visit near my churches.
This special Sunday concludes Confirmation and officially welcomes all confirmands as members into the church. All confirmands are asked to stand before the congregation to present their faith statements.
