Who is Jesus? | Is the Bible True? | Why should I pray?

Part of growing up is asking questions about God and the world around us. Encounter Confirmation is a chance to explore Christianity with other students who may be facing the same questions and issues.

This is an opportunity for 7th and 8th grade students to grow in their faith and develop relationships with classmates and mentors.

Encounter meets at Sugar River United Methodist Church on Wednesdays from 6:00-8:00. We share a meal together, play games, and have activities and discussions surrounding a different topic each week. The curriculum includes multimedia note books for each student and weekly videos that help students with varied interests and learning styles engage more deeply in the Christian faith and the United Methodist Church.
