What to expect at PowerLife
PowerLife is our confirmation ministry designed to help students discover their faith through weekly gatherings where we create space for students to focus on building healthy, faith-filled relationships; learn more about God through worship, prayer and our study of the Bible; and live out their faith by applying their beliefs to their everyday life!
Junior high students registered for PowerLife will be placed in a small group with 8-12 students and an adult volunteer. Each week, students will start with connection time to engage in community and relationship with friends. After connection time they move to time in worship, and they will hear a powerful message from a speaker. Students will finish the night with small group time to discuss the message, life situations, and prayer.
PowerLife is a safe space for students to bring their questions, doubts, fears and excitements. It is a ministry where students are encouraged to create healthy, faith-filled relationships with friends and grow in their relationship with God. We help students read the Bible and connect with God in scripture, worship, and prayer. Students will be given tools to apply what they believe and share the Gospel in their everyday life!
