Head 2 Heart
In Head 2 Heart, students in 6th – 8th grade prepare for Confirmation by learning the nuts-n-bolts of the Lutheran faith (head) while practicing how to live out that faith (heart) through service and fellowship opportunities.
6th grade students attend twice a month in addition to a home-based component. 7th-8th graders meet every Monday from 7:00-8:30 PM September through April.
Monday gatherings include a fun, whole-group game, teaching time, and small group breakout sessions where the kids get to make deeper connections with each other and dive into discussions about what they learned for the night.
Our 6th – 8th graders meet together on Sunday mornings from 9:45-10:30 to learn about and discuss the Bible in a way that is meaningful to them.
Head 2 Heart has a variety of opportunities for you to get involved with. From leading a small group to greeting students and teams, we have opportunities for you to serve. If you are looking to make a lasting impact on our next generation of leaders and want to help them experience the love of Christ and grow deeply rooted in their faith, we would love to meet with you about leading a small group! Email Stephanie Sherman for more information.
