  • Right now we’re planning to do it during regular church school times.
  • Lessons will be all age so families with multiple children can do it together on 1 device.
  • Occasionally we may have a kit with supplies for you to pick up.
  • The lesson will include a little music, the Bible story and some activity or discussion.

CONFIRMATION

  • We will work with small groups to create safe options for fellowship & service projects.

ONLINE/AT HOME OPTION
