Join us Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m. to wake up with fellowship, study, and donuts! We will gather for music and announcements, then split into middle school and high school groups to awaken to God’s word. 6th-8th grades meet in Room 202 and 9-12th grades meet in Room 203 in the Family Life Center.
Come Sunday nights to dig deeper through fellowship, study, and prayer. We will engage our whole selves in discussion, prayer, and worship…plus a whole lot of fun! Engage meets each week from 4:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the Family Life Center.
[All youth; some events are middle school/high school only, see weekly youth news]

Parents should plan to stay for a parent meeting in FLC Garrison Chapel during Engage. During our Engage Kickoff, we’ll have our Fall Parent Meeting. We’ll go over all the information and forms for the new school year! Take a look at all the opportunities for the youth through Spring 2020 and hear feedback from one another! Dinner will be provided and we hope you can make it!
Connect: Self, Community, God
Our Tweens (5th, 6th, and 7th graders) are invited to join us monthly as we build relationships, serve, and help youth connect to one another and with God during the transitional pre-teen years. Connect will meet one Friday each month from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in the Family Life Center.
[5th, 6th, and 7th grade youth]
Our 8th, 9th, and 10th graders are invited to take the next step in their faith journey. Confirmation is an opportunity to respond to the grace of God available to us, as acknowledged in baptism, and to promise to live as a person of faith. Confirmands are asked to remember their baptism, so we ask each of our participants to have been baptized prior to completing Confirmation. Confirmands will complete their Confirmation by being asked to take the same vows of membership in The United Methodist Church and our local congregation that all who join are asked.
