Growing In a Life of Faith
Attention Parents, Grandparents and Guardians of Young Teens
Are the young people in your life asking questions about faith as they gain more independence? Are you looking for ways to nurture your teens’ spiritual development as they venture farther out into the wider world? Rev. Craig and the Christian Education Committee at the First Congregational Church of Walpole are offering a new program for youth age 12 to 15 to nurture the seeds of faith that have been planted in our young people as they transition to a mature expression of faith. The goal of the youth program includes getting ready for Confirmation by exploring what it means to live into the Christian faith with love, grace, mercy and justice. All youth in the Walpole area age 12 to 15 are welcome. Family membership in the church is not required.
Youth will meet two Sundays per month 9:00 to 9:30 a.m. with Rev. Craig and a parent helper. Teens and their families are then welcome to join us for worship at 10:00 a.m. We also anticipate monthly fellowship and service activities, which may include youth from other nearby churches.
There will be an informational meeting for parents, grandparents and guardians with Rev. Craig and members of the Christian Education committee on Sunday, April 10, 2016 at 11:30 a.m. at the First Congregational Church of Walpole, 15 Washington Street, upstairs conference room.
Friendly Friday To Be Held at the Walpole Primary School on April 29, 5:30-7:30p
The food, fun and fellowship will be the same, but the venue changes for just this month. Rev. Craig and his family invite Walpole area families of all kinds to join in Friendly Friday on April 29 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. down at the Walpole Primary School Community Room. We’ll play group games (hopefully outside!), enjoy a delicious pot luck and learn about how our faith can give us strength to face the challenges of life. Please bring a side or main dish to share. Church will provide the drinks and dessert. For more information “like” Friendly Fridays on FaceBook or contact the church at 756-4075,firstname.lastname@example.org
