5-6 (Confirmation)

Welcome to 5 & 6 Grade Ministry at Hope! 

If you want to stay in the loop about all things 5-6th grade, please email Steve McCarthy at and pass along your cell phone number so I can add you to our text “Remind” group. I’m looking forward to meeting all the new 5th graders and for seeing the rising 6th graders again! Questions? Contact DCE Steve McCarthy at  or 919-554-8109.

Christmas Lock-In
December 7-8 from 7:00PM-8:00AM; cost is $5 + gift donations
At this year’s lock-in, we'll be playing games, watching movies, eating pizza, and even completing another awesome service project for children who are spending the holidays in the hospital!

The cost of the lock-in is $5 (to cover the cost of food and supplies), but we also ask that every family sign up to bring 3+ gifts, see the approved gift list online. These gifts will be given to children spending the holidays in the NC Children's Hospital. The goal is to brighten their spirits and show them the love of Christ through our gifts -- and to create a stronger sense of generosity and Christ-like love among our 5-6 graders. It's a chance for them to put their faith into practice.  Contact Steve at for more info! Register here and sign up for gifts here.



Sunday School
Please note, there will be no Sunday School on December 30, 2018. Stop by the Youth Center from 9:45-10:45AM to play games, create artistic masterpieces, make friends, and strengthen your relationship with Jesus. It will be a fun combo of learning, playing, and creating! And don’t forget to BARF (Bring a Real Friend)!



The Confirmation Program at Hope

Confirmation is a time in a young person's faith life when they confirm the promise made at their baptism. Hope's program is two years during 5 & 6 grades. However, each year we have 7-9 graders who connect to Hope and go through the program as well. Students focus on a Lutheran understanding of the Bible and use the Catechism as a guide.
