Confirmation

Confirmation is a long-standing Christian tradition and holds a special place in our United Methodist heritage. It gives those who were baptized as infants the ability to confirm the decision made on their behalf to become faithful members of the body of Christ. At the same time, Confirmation gives those who have never been baptized the opportunity to make that life-changing decision and enter into the body of Christ through the sacrament of baptism. Confirmation also prepares students to affirm their faith before the congregation and join the church in the spring.

In order to create a meaningful and safe experience for students, our confirmation class will begin in August this year. More information will be released as it becomes available. Please contact our Director of Discipleship Michael Andres with any questions.

 

Acts 2 UMC Youth Ministries

Sunday Mornings

10:45 a.m. Every Other Sunday – Jr and Sr High Youth Bible Study

On Sundays when we have in-person worship, students are encouraged to attend Church Online at 9:15 a.m. and participate in the Youth Bible study at 10:45 a.m. Students meet in the North Portable and discuss practical faith, questions about the Bible, and what it means to live like Christ. Our hope is that these activities will help our students reflect the teachings of Christ in their daily lives. On the in-between weeks, we invite students to participate in our Serve Sunday activity during the usual Bible Study time. Check our church calendar to see if this Sunday is a Serve Sunday!

Wednesday Evenings

6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. – Jr and Sr High Youth

The Junior and Senior High Youth meet from 6:30-8:00pm on Wednesdays. Our time together is spent in prayer, small group discussions, and playing games. Small groups are divided by grade and gender to help facilitate conversation that focuses on developing spiritual disciplines, providing encouragement and accountability, and caring for one another through prayer. Each small group is led by two trained adult mentors.

Youth Service Days

As part of our commitment to the Acts 2 value of Worship +2 – a place to worship, a place to learn, and a place to serve – our students have a monthly opportunity to serve together in our local community. Youth Service Day opportunities have included the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, Skyline Urban Ministries, the Hope Center of Edmond, Feed the Children, Penn Avenue Redemption Church, Epworth Villa Retirement Community, and Circle of Care, among others. These monthly Youth Service Days give our students an opportunity to partner with local service organizations and neighbors in need as we seek to be the hands and feet of Jesus and be part of the transformation of the world.
