Retreat & Missions Trip
Retreats and Mission Trips provide students an opportunity to ramp up the fellowship and go out into the world. Elevation 2016 is going on a hunt for Lost Treasure at a great new retreat facility called Refreshing Mountain in Stevens, PA. New in 2017 is a week long missions trip to Detroit, Michigan. Please visit the Elevation or Missions Trip pages for more details.
Confirmation is the process to join the Methodist Church and specifically Armstrong Chapel. Classes are held on Sunday mornings at 9:40 and run from November until March. Classes involve learning about the traditions of the Methodist church, some quizzes, journaling and a test at the end. There is also a Confirmation Retreat and service weekend. Details are mailed home to all 8th grade students in late September. Eighth grade students and older students are welcome. This year’s confirmation class begins with breakfast on November 5th at 8:20 in Fellowship Hall. Contact Wendy in the church office to RSVP.
A class geared towards preparing our high school seniors to confidently carry their faith with them into college. Senior year stress starts early in the year and life gets super busy towards the end of the year. To walk with you through the process, classes are spread out into 10 sessions covering 5 months, November through March. Seniors will share in a faith community facing all the stressful parts of the senior year together, spread out the time commitment, and be done with the class before the busyness of spring graduation season.
During this class, you will have the opportunity to discuss practical ways to make sure your faith stays strong as you transition to college next fall. It covers everything from budgeting to how to find Christian community on and around the school to reminders of God’s grace. Register online.
Class is offered from 11:00am to Noon in the Lower Level.
