Youth Faith Formation: It’s More Than Just Confirmation

Zion and St. Stephen’s are teaming up to do youth faith formation this year! Parents/grandparents/guardians and youth grades 5-12 are invited to get a taste of what we have in store this winter and spring, including – but not limited to – confirmation. 
We anticipate Youth Faith Formation having a commitment of 2 times a month, once for activities/discussions/learnings at church, and once for fellowship and service with Young People’s Fellowship.
Our vision is this: We believe that churches can be places where youth experience belonging, connection, and encouragement as they figure out who they are and what it all means. In a world filled with pressure and anxiety, churches can be places where youth don’t feel the need to perform and achieve, but can simply be themselves. Our highest hopes for youth ministry don’t involve dumping two thousand years of Christian doctrine into teenagers’ heads, but convening a space where their questions can be honored and wisdom can be shared.
