            CONFIRMATION CLASS 2018
                   In St. Paul’s confirmation program, we intentionally unplug and get away from the hustle of our daily lives so that we can:
Get to know one another.
Seek God together and alone.
Gain a deeper understanding of Christianity, and also of United Methodist history.
Explore how our faith relates to and interacts with the world in this time and place.
Discuss all kinds of questions about faith and life together.
Make a commitment, again or for the first time, to live as followers of Jesus.

                         MOUNTAIN TOP INTEREST SIGN-UP


            Sunday evening SPYF meetings will begin for the spring on January 7. Meeting on the 3rd floor of the Education Center, SPYF begins with dinner each week at 5:30, followed by a lesson, discussion, and game time, which wraps up at 8pm. All in grades 6-12 are welcome!

            Would you be willing and able to provide dinner for SPYF on one Sunday evening this spring? A couple of important points for our SPYF Hosts:
                              * Please keep all food free of nuts because of severe allergies in our group.
                              * Please provide a meatless option for those who wish to eat a vegetarian diet.
                              * Please plan to serve dinner around 5:45PM.
                              * Please prepare to be appreciated in a big way by our SPYF students and leaders.

Sign up here to be a SPYF Host!

            SPYF Sunday School meets at 9:15 on Sunday mornings on the 3rd floor of the Education Center. This class provides another study opportunity for SPYF students. Led by a team of volunteers from St. Paul’s, the Sunday school class also provides an opportunity for St. Paul’s youth to build deeper relationships with other generations from the St. Paul’s & Wesley Foundation family. All students in grades 6-12 are welcome!
