Somewhere around middle schools the stories of God change in a young persons mind. Questions arise. Beautiful questions! In “Confirmation”, these younger ones 8th grade or older get to rehear the stories of scripture, ask and discuss all their God questions, and begin to build a faith of their own. We meet twice a month as a class. Tap Chris@opcusa.org for the detailed schedule, and please register on our Realm portal.
Sunday nights are for YOUTH! We start with Middle School, from 500-630pm. High Schoolers are here from 600-800pm. The 30 minute overlap is dinner and announcements. We play, share, learn, play some more, and really get to know ourselves, each other, and God better. See you Sundays!
Trunk OR Treat? How about Trunks FULL OF Treats! This big party is for everyone, young and old, member and friend alike. Dress up your body, your trunk, and get ready to play some games, enjoy some food, and share some treats with the younger ones.
At this special service, we join with our Jewish, Muslim, and Christian brothers and sisters and look for ways to worship beside one another. Rev. Joel was one of the founding clergy of this group, and the Interfaith Clergy Partnership of Greater Athens. Find out more at icpgathens.org
These two Wednesdays, Dec 4 and 11, 545-700pm, all our younger ones get ready to lead our special Child & Youth led Christmas worship!
