NEXT SAFE SANCTUARY TRAINING

Safe Sanctuaries is one of the “social structures that are consistent with the gospel” (Book of Discipline, ¶122) allowing our sanctuaries, classrooms, mission encounters, camps and retreats, and all spaces where we gather to worship and serve God to be places of trust. Mandatory training is required for all persons having direct contact with children, youth, and vulnerable adults in all activities that take place in a local congregation and beyond.

CONFIRMATION 

At Smyrna First UMC, we will be offering Confirmation classes for youth who are in sixth grade and above. This class will be a great learning and spiritual experience for bringing youth into full connection with the church. Classes will begin in September and end in May, 2016. The youth will learn about what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ, about the Christian life, worship, service, church history, and tradition, the use of Scripture, and the meaning of church membership. In addition special activities are planned including a Confirmation Day with the Bishop. The class will conclude with the Confirmation Service on Pentecost Sunday, May 15, 2016.   I
