WNC Youth

Building Bridges (6:30-7:30pm Room J) Recommended for ages 14-19 

Evangelism is one of our primary directives as Christians, but sharing our faith is easier said than done. In this original curriculum, students will explore ways to tell the story of Jesus to people of other world religions. They’ll learn what questions to ask, points they can agree on, ways to avoid hostility, and most important Bible lessons non-Christians need to know.

Colaborate: Methodist Confirmation (6:30-7:30pm Room H)

Recommended for ages 11-15 

Youth will take an honest look at the holy mystery and the complexity of Scripture while exploring the richness of Methodist history and doctrine to prepare them for the next step in their faith - Confirmation
