Join us for a bite to eat, game to play, catching up with friends, making new ones, or an early morning nap. Cereal, snacks, juice, even waffles.

During this class, we will meet n the Youth Area (The Zone) at FUMC. The curriculum is derived from Sparkhouse, re:Form series. It is based off of questions asked about the Christian Religion, and are split into several categories: Bible, Creed, Discipleship, Jesus, Other Beliefs, and Tough Questions. I like to have a survey of over 40 questions in the series, and tailor our class to answer those questions these young persons have. This journey is always better in community, not alone, and we encourage our prospective confirmands to invite a "friend in faith”. This could be a close “mature” friend, family member, small group leader, or other adult, that can participate in the classes on Mondays and be a supportive character through the process and even beyond. Pre-regsitration not required. You will register at the first meeting on February 3. Hope to see you there!

The story of the joyous holiday of Purim might appear somber at first glance: It tells of the near-destruction of the Jewish people as decreed by Haman, an adviser to the Persian King Ahasuerus. However, Ahasuerus’ newly crowned queen, Esther, who is secretly a Jew. Due to her courage and her eventual role in saving the Jews, the story of Purim is known as “Megillat Esther,” or the Scroll of Esther.
