Christian Education (Youth)

NOTE from the March 2021 Messenger:  Due to Covid and busy teenage schedules, the youth group has not been meeting regularly this school year however we always have our next social gathering and our next mission trip in the back of our minds.  We will keep you all posted when we do get something scheduled.

Sunday School:  Sunday School at Newark First UMC is held weekly from 9:00 am to 9:50 am starting the weekend after Labor Day until the third Sunday of June.  There are three classes available:  K-4, 5-8, and High School.  Please contact Jessica Wells or Janie Reeder for additional information.

Sr. High Confirmation 2018:

On Sunday, December 2, 2018, we celebrated the confirmation of Jenna Havert, Lynzee Havert, Josh Mercer, Ben Talbot and Trinity Wells.

Confirmation class is a re-affirmation of the baptismal vows that were made on the youth’s behalf when they were younger. We walked with them as we explored who we are as Christians and what the foundations of our United Methodist beliefs are.  In addition we read through the entire gospel of Mark during our time together, two chapters per week.  The entire congregation was encouraged to read along with the youth and their leaders.  Confirmation 2018 began on Sunday October 7th and continued every Sunday until November 25th.  Congratulations to the youth and their leaders.
