On Sunday, June 3, many of Hope’s youth will move on up to their new Sunday School classes and youth groups. Rising 5th graders will begin attending 5-6 Sunday School in the Youth Center in room 115, and are welcome to all 5-6 grade events.

Tuesday evenings from 6:30-7:30PM in the Youth Center.
Summer is here! The fun continues on TUESDAY nights – a night dedicated just to 5-6 grade fun, fellowship, and faith! Get ready for crazy games, new and old friends, and interactive Bible studies! Come to the Youth Center (drop off and pick up is behind the church, NOT upstairs by the circle) except for the Second Tuesday of each month.  On the Second Tuesdays (6/12, 7/10, 8/14) we’ll meet at Dairy Depot for ice cream.  Please note: there will be no youth group the week of VBS (June 19) or July 3.

Birthday Tradition for 5-6 Graders 
Every month Steve McCarthy will host one big birthday get-together at Dairy Depot to celebrate everyone who had their birthday during that month. Even if you didn’t have a birthday that month, you are still welcome to show up and celebrate with the birthday kids! But if you did have a birthday that month you’ll get free ice cream or hot chocolate! 

Sunday School 

Calling all rising 5 & 6 grades to join the fun on Sunday mornings. Stop by the youth center from 9:45-10:45am to play games, create artistic masterpieces, make friends, and strengthen their 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. 

Classes and registration will begin in the early fall.
