8th-9thGrade Profession

This year our Profession class will be offered for 8th and 9th grade students. Profession is an opportunity for 8th and 9th graders to dive deeper into their faith journey with Christ.  Session experiences will allow students to think deeply about their developing Christian faith, and to better articulate what they believe and why they believe it.  Throughout the year students will be mentored by members of our church body, hear teachings and testimonies of faith journeys, and participate in large and small group events to equip them to truly take personal ownership of their faith.

  • Profession meetings will be held on the following dates from 11:45 AM – 1:30 PM. 
  • Sep 19th, Oct 17th, Nov 14th, Dec 19th, Jan 23rd, Feb 27th, March 27th, April 24th
