SUNDAY SCHOOL AND CONFIRMATION
Sundays 9:50-10:50 a.m. from September through June
Junior High Gathering: Are you in sixth or seventh grade and looking for your own space at University UMC? Gather in our Youth Lounge to chat about what’s going on in your lives, and how God is working in you and your community. There’s always a sweet snack to enjoy too! Sunday mornings from 9:50-10:50 a.m., led by Carol Walker and Vickie Huggins.
Confirmation: Do you ever wonder why we spend time on Sunday mornings in worship dipping bread in grape juice? Or why the pastor splashes water on the forehead of someone getting baptized? Do you ever wonder why bad things happen to good people? Or why we say out loud in church that we believe in Jesus? Come discuss these questions and many more in our Confirmation Class this year. All eighth graders (and those older who have not been confirmed) are welcome to join weekly to explore our faith together on Sunday mornings in Basement 3 next to the Fellowship Hall, led by Jenny and Chadd McGlone. Check out the curriculum here!
Breakfast at Sonrise: Currently in High School? Take a break from class and homework to have breakfast together Sunday mornings between worshipservices, and chat about life. Conversations will be led by Meredith Dangel and Kevin Huggins. We will gather and eat in the Hyde Hall Kitchen (across the driveway next to the Fellowship Hall) each Sunday from 9:50-10:50 a.m.
U-CREW: WEEKLY FELLOWSHIP
Nearly every Sunday evening in the school year, we gather to share a meal, play some games, and either learn about God through scripture, serve God through mission, or see God in one another by meeting in small groups. Come for a free dinner and fellowship starting at 5:00 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall on Sunday evenings.
