5th Grade, Ablaze
Fifth grade is a big year for our youth at St. John's! They have graduated from traditional Sunday School and begin our Ablaze program to prepare for our confirmation program, Affirm. We plan this year to make sure this class has a solid foundation of key points of the Bible and faith formation. This class also receives their first communion in spring.
In fall, this class will began outside around campfires on Wednesday nights September 15 at 7:00pm. We will begin the year by meeting outside, igniting our faith around a campfire and strengthening our connections with each other and with our faith.
After our campfires, we have divided into two small groups and meet in the youth room. One group will meet on Wednesday nights (7:00pm-8:00pm) and the other on Sunday mornings from 9:30am-10:10am.
Our Fifth Grade, Ablaze class receives instruction in Holy Communion during the Lenten Season. They make their own communion cups, bread and celebrate their Holy Communion together at a special service during the Lenten Season.
